FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE
Our friend and big Bozeman Jazz supporter Greg sent me his recommendation for this week : “the album Windows, by the Tim Ray Trio. I just heard a great, stretched-out tune from it, called Joy. The album also contains my favorite, Dolphin Dance, and some other nice tunes. This album is an excellent example of the modern jazz piano trio, in the Bill Evans tradition.”
Tim Ray Trio : Tim Ray on piano, John Lockwood on bass, and Mark Walker on drums.
Thank you for participating in BigSkyJazz, Greg!
