Album Description

Mystery Man is a natural follow-up to my prior album, Bop Boy. Bob Mintzer and Terry Clarke once again join me on this second endeavor for MusicMasters, performing two pieces each by Kenny Wheeler and Lars Jansson, and three compositions by Bob Mintzer. Also included are contributions by our bassist Mike Richmond, pianist Will Boulware, and Richard Rogers, whose classic piece, My Funny Valentine, serves as a duo vehicle for me and Bill Charlap. I believe the relationship between these musicians is quite significant. Bob Malach—a most wonderful tenor soloist—Mike Richmond, and I have been touring a great deal with the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band—which is where I also met and shared the trumpet section with Kenny Wheeler. Bob Malach and I are also members of the Bob Mintzer Band, which resides in NYC. Terry Clarke and I have played on a number of groups together of which pianist Bill Charlap is a member. So there are many connecting threads among this group, all of which I think contributes much to these performances. For these reasons and more, the making of Mystery Man was a great pleasure; and was a venture that brought many moments of fulfillment.

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!
