Fiona's Comments

A tune brought to life by a wonderful quartet (for this tune quintet minus sax). Light touch, deep impact - less is more! Joyful.

About the Album

For his second Origin release, drummer Rich Thompson gathers together a group of exceptional modern jazz talent for an energized set of standards and originals. With trumpeter Terell Stafford, pianist/organist Gary Versace, saxophonist Doug Stone, and bassist Jeff Campbell, the quintet reimagines jazz standards such as Kenny Dorham's "Lotus Blossom," Ornette Coleman's "Invisible," and Wayne Shorter's "This is for Albert," Great American Songbook classics such as "I've Never Been in Love Before," and originals from Thompson and Campbell.

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!
