Album Description

On this album, recorded in Hollywood, USA, Saskia Laroo is honoured and proud to appear as a jazz bebop trumpet player together with the late and legendaric first West Coast bebop tenorist Teddy Edwards and blues veteran vocalist Ernie Andrews as well as an all-American authentic cooking and grooving rhythm section. The CD, recorded in Los Angeles, takes us through cool grooving standards, and newly arranged original compositions of Teddy Edwards. Vocalist Ernie Andrews brings 2 compositions of Mr Edwards: the bluestrack "Don “t touch me" and the wellknown "Sunset Eyes", that has been recorded for the first time more then 50 years ago by Teddy with the legendary Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quartet. Prior to the recordings Saskia did a series of performances with Edwards in New York (Iridium), Detroit: and in Los Angeles as well with vocalist Andrews. The CD release in Europe took place at the North Sea Jazz festival, July 1999 (Netherlands).

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.
