Master trumpeter/composer John McNeil's evolutionary new music, East Coast Cool, applies the classic West Coast jazz sound of the Gerry Mulligan-Chet Baker Quartet to the sensibilities of modern creative improvised music. The tunes on East Coast Cool (as is "Brother Frank") are mostly reminiscent of the Mulligan-Baker Quartets, containing elements of the sound and feel of that quartet's music without being re-creationist or imitative.

The first jazz show I ever attended was the Herbie Hancock Sextet, when I was 15. I had just left the Julliard Preparatory Division, having recently heard Jimi Hendrix for the first time. I was in search of new musical horizons and its been a fascinating journey from that point onward.
