Fiona's Comments

Eric Harland's taps spell it out with a stunning Grilli solo and necessary but discreet piano/bass fill.

About the Album

The first track of guitarist/composer Grilli's second album is named for the brightest star in the eastern celestial hemisphere and suggests the giant star's powerful gravitational pull with a gradual build in intensity due in large part to drummer Eric Harland's insistent rhythms. It's just one of many out of this world tracks laid down by Grilli, Harland, pianist Aaron Parks, and bassist Joe Martin.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
