Eddie Higgins With Strings On 180g Vinyl LP!

Veteran jazz pianist Eddie Higgins has performed and recorded with many of the biggest names in jazz, including Coleman Hawkins, Jack Teagarden, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie and Wayne Shorter. On this set for Venus, Higgins is joined by Jay Leonhart on bass, Joe Cohn on guitar, Joe Ascione on drums and Joe Locke on vibes.

Higgins' renditions...sound like the definitive jazz text from which other versions are departures.
-Down Beat
Higgins is less a stylist than a brilliant generalist who ranges through the history of the music, selecting, winnowing and refining...draws from all eras of jazz piano without being tied to any of them.
