Fiona's Comments

Wonderful straight-ahead tune. Nice drive to the piece, but not as the expense of delicacy. Should appeal to Hard Bop and Modern Jazz fans alike. Real nice stuff.

About the Album

Reassembling the stellar quintet from his classic 1978 recording "Free Fall" and his 2010 Origin release "Live At Sweet Rhythm," pianist and composer Richard Sussman honors the unique musical chemistry of the group with a new program of mostly original compositions along with classics, "Alone Together" and "Theme for Ernie." With the exception of trumpeter Randy Brecker replacing Tom Harrell in the line-up, Sussman returns with saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi, bassist Mike Richmond and drummer Jeff Williams, along with an appearance by special guest, guitarist Mike Stern.

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!
