Album Description

Our destination on this album was a wonderful recording studio tucked into a mountain with vast sky and jagged peaks as a view. Andy Simpkins' journey there was a circuitous one. He is the classic well-travelled bassist with whom I shared the bandstand and the bus as we zigzagged the country with the Shearing Quintet. Jack Wilkins arrived via our association in New York, where jazz clubs are regularly graced by his accomplished presence. Ted Moore and I first crossed paths at the Eastman School. He then detoured to the Rio Symphony and to the world music of Paul Winter before joining us at this session. Co-producing was skillful Bob Edwards, who was destined to keep us all laughing. The music reflects travel destinations - ranging from the ghost town Ashcroft to New York's Columbus Avenue - as well as a few meanderings enroute.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
