Bill Crow Joined By Carmen Leggio, John Cohn, and David Jones!

Crow, who is an accomplished soloist when he chooses to take a chorus or two, is joined by veteran tenor saxophonist Carmen Leggio, guitarist Joe Cohn (son of tenor sax legend Al Cohn), and drummer David Jones.

Crow has played Broadway shows, including Boccaccio, Rogers & Hart, The King and I, The Grand Tour, Morrisey Hall, On the Twentieth Century, and 42nd Street. He appears on many recordings with other jazz musicians, and has two CDs under his own name, The Bill Crow Quartet, with Venus Records of Tokyo. He has also self-produced a trio album with Hiroshi Yamazaki and John Cutrone titled "Embraceable You," and another with guitarist Armand Hirsch titled "Bill Crow Sings."

The title track is a catchy blues with a snappy strut rhythm and fine solos by both Cohn and Leggio, while "Share a Key" is a tasty bossa nova. Crow also revives an oldie, "News From Blueport," which the bassist had written in the early '60s while a member of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet; this memorable blues still inspires musicians to shine. In addition to several enjoyable arrangements of standards, Crow's subtle scoring of Oscar Pettiford's "Tricotism" and Mulligan's underappreciated ballad "Night Lights" round out this highly recommended release.
