Fiona's Comments

Little Wing, controversial lyrics for the 21st Century. Melody fits like a glove with country guitar, cello, bass and drums. Hank's delivery is unique.

About the Album

"Little Wing" is the first track from Phil Haynes' new album "My Favorite Things (1960-1969)." The album, featuring drummer/composer Haynes' "jazz-grass" string band Free Country with Hank Roberts, Jim Yanda, and Drew Gress, takes on The Beatles, Hendrix, Coltrane, James Brown, and more. "My Favorite Things" concludes a trilogy by Free Country which, released over nearly two decades, encompasses nearly the entire history of American popular music in the band's own irreverent, stripped-down fashion.

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!
