About the Album

A hard grooving Afro 6/8 arrangement of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" sets the mood for the CD listening experience. Trumpeter Vinny Cutro (Horace Silver, Spirit of Life) digs into the melody in a Woody Shaw tradition and plunges straight into one of the CDs many sizzling solos over guitarist John Hart's perpetually swinging accompaniment. Bassist Kermit Driscoll (Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Ben Monder) propels the ensemble forward at every opportunity.

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!
