About the Album

Best known for his work with Chet Baker, Cannonball Adderley, John Scofield, and the Phil Woods Quintet, Hal Galper brings a lifetime of world-class performing experience to his latest group endeavor. Teaming with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop, the trio explores standards, originals and group improvisation utilizing "Rubato" playing, an open and circular approach to time and melody that Galper has been exploring & developing over the last several years. Here, interpreting such classics as Naima, Milestones and Miles Ahead, the trio creates a dynamic, fluid and timely snapshot of an important direction in modern jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
