Several Generations Of Jazz Compositions on SACD!

Russell Malone is an American jazz guitarist. He began working with Jimmy Smith in 1988 and went on to work with Harry Connick, Jr. and Diana Krall throughout the 1990s. Malone has toured with Ron Carter, Roy Hargrove, and Dianne Reeves and has done session work with Kenny Barron, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Jack McDuff, Mulgrew Miller, and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson. He recorded his first solo album in 1992 and has led his own trio and quartet. Other guest appearances have included Malone with vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and pianist Hank Jones in celebration of his 90th birthday. In October 2008 he performed in a duo with guitarist Bill Frisell at Yoshi's in Oakland, California. During the next year, Malone became a member of the band for saxophonist Sonny Rollins, celebrating his 80th birthday in New York City.

"Russell Malone recorded this studio date for Venus in 1995, though it was several years before the Japanese label got around to issuing it. Joined by an excellent rhythm section consisting of Larry Willis, Rodney Whitaker, and Yoron Israel, Malone is not afraid to go into lengthy exploration of an old favorite like 'I Concentrate on You.' Malone delves into jazz compositions of several generations, including a furious take of Benny Goodman's 'Wholly Cats,' an easygoing interpretation of Mulgrew Miller's wistful ballad 'Carousel,' and a virtuoso performance of Thelonious Monk's challenging 'Four in One.' His one original is the strident 'Chitlin Blues,' a duo track with a delicious exchange between the guitarist and Whitaker's humorous arco bass. Among his unaccompanied selections are a spacious yet subtle rendition of the spiritual 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' and an intricate treatment of 'Yesterdays.' Recommended." - Ken Dryden, AllMusic
