Some musicians possess the ability to pull a listener into the world of their album and turn the simple act of listening to a CD into an event rivaling the experience of a live show. Tim Collins is one of those musicians, and if "Pond" is any indication of the rest of Castles and Hilltops, then pick this album up and expect something special. A vibe player with a cinematic tone, he's backed by a solid crew of all-star names in jazz circles. Grissett sounds like he's been playing with Collins since childhood. Enjoy!
From my new album Castles and Hilltops, the piece 'Pond' features Danny Grissett (piano), Matt Clohesy (bass), and Tommy Crane (drums).
