Fiona's Comments

Halley continues to be one of the best under-the-radar jazz musicians around. He finds the perfect balance of fiery sound and melodic sweetness, compositional logic and improvisational mania. Album after album, Halley puts out great jazz. Definitely explore this guy's discography.

About the Album

Spuds is the first track from Back From Beyond, the second CD by the Rich Halley 4. The group features Rich Halley (tenor sax), Michael Vlatkovich (trombone), Clyde Reed (bass), and Carson Halley (drums). This band is about compositional group improvisation and "Spuds" is a good example of how the group does that.
