New recording... Out NOW!
Richard Exall and Amy Roberts
After two productive and exciting days recording with Craig Milverton - piano, Sandy Sucholdoski - bass, Nick Millward - drums and Steven Vintner - vibes, our new album is now in the process of being mixed and mastered.
The material is sourced from two of the world finest alto saxophone masters, Johnny Hodges and Earl Bostic. Both players in their prime during the 40's, 50's and 60's, simialr in many respects, but from opposite ends of the jazz spectrum. Our new album "HODGE-STIC" represents jazz at the time of new beats and rhythms, with Bostic firmly aiming at the dance halls while Hodges stormed the concert halls and jazz clubs. The variety of tempos, textures and moods is impressive ; with sultry ballads, bouncing bop and storming stomps all in equal measure. Something here for everyone.
Track titles include ..... Jeeps Blues, Tenderly, Below The Azores, Cherokee, Flamingo, Special Delivery Stomp, Sophisticated Lady.....
