Fiona's Comments

Terrell's one sheet packs it in. This tune could be the timely warning response to the call, "Don't smoke in bed." #hotinhere #sultry #anxious #forgivebutdontforget #smokingkills #staycool

About the Album

No, No, No is a power waltz with a lot of lyricism in the melody. Terell takes the first solo, with clarity, lyricism and power, followed by Tim Warfield with a smart flurry of notes, and Kevin Hays with some funky passages along with Rodney Green (drums), and Greg Williams (bass). The band plays with a lot of precision on the this track(and album!)....also a lot of feeling...emotion. The end is a nice rewind moment. A fitting opening to Terell Stafford's latest effort which swings, grooves and pulses with modern post-bop panache. Terell's solo work is like a light in darkness.

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!
