Fiona's Comments

With these guys as your shadow you're going to run faster. Feels like Joe Sample's 'Hippies on a Corner.'

About the Album

Through the richly textured arrangements of longtime collaborator Nick Lane and a stellar ensemble of Los Angeles' finest, veteran guitarist and composer Tom Rizzo creates a swinging and wide-ranging recording of interesting standards and provocative originals. From the subtly loose groove of Ornette Coleman's, "Law Years," to the lush orchestration of Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes," or the buoyant swing of Cole Porter's "So In Love," Rizzo's supple guitar lines provide a central voice to a wide array of sonic moods. Along with the quartet of Rizzo, drummer Steve Schaeffer, pianist Dennis Hamm and bassist David Hughes, is a 6-piece horn section featuring saxophonist Bob Sheppard, trumpeter Bob Summers and Nick Lane on trombone.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
