Album Description

Produced by Donald Brown and featuring Kirk Whalum, trumpeter/flugelhornist Tom Williams, and pianist Keith Brown, Donald’s son, this album showcases The Maguires Twins, Carl Seitaro Maguire on drums and Alan Shutaro Maguire on bass on material ranging from jazz standards like “Speak Low” to the Broadway-derived title track to “Hamabe no Uta,” a popular early-20th-century Japanese tune translated into jazz. They were only 18 years old at the time of recording. Perhaps most significantly to them, they recorded Joe Henderson’s hard-bop classic, “Inner Urge.” Henderson had an enormous influence on them. “He got us into the music,” says Carl. “His harmonies blew me away, plus his writing is so drummeristic.”

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.
