Can't beat a good mallet dasher setting the tone. The horns...what an entrance! Classy stuff.

About the Album

This is a track from the new CD by the David Caffey Jazz Orchestra titled ALL IN ONE, composed and arranged by David Caffey. It features tenor saxophonist Peter Sommer and Greg Gisbert on trumpet. The piece consists of three sections, beginning with a beautiful marimba statement played by two players. Peter Sommer joins the marimba with a heart-felt theme statement that evolves into a driving Latin groove. The last section is in a Brazilian Baiao time-feel that builds throughout with Greg Gisbert's fiery trumpet solo soaring above the full ensemble near the end.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
