Hank JONES, Christian McBRIDE & Jimmy COBB - West of 5th 2006

Hank JONES, Christian McBRIDE & Jimmy COBB - West of 5th 2006
Recorded January 29, 2006 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, New York City


What a nice selection of music to satisfy any jazz enthusiast. Hank and company are so in sync and bring out the nuances of these familiar pieces with such elegance and refinement. Truly a pleasure to listen to such playing. The years of dedication to their craft brings something to this there just isn't any substitute for. These musicians truly are symbiotic in their playing, with never a trace of showboating. And the sound is truly an open window right into the studio. It's like you're there, even in standard redbook format.
