About the album
Artist: Bob Brookmeyer, Michael Stephans, Tom Warrington, Larry Koonse The disc you hold in your hands is further documentation of a lifelong friendship - both musical and personal. Bob has been my mentor, big brother, and my deep and lasting friend. Add to this, the beautiful, empathetic music of our friends, the brilliant guitarist Larry Koonse, and the always inventive bassist Tom Warrington, and you have a four-way conversation that is both immensely appealing and completely captivating. Every track on this CD is unique, and the Brookmeyer persona is everywhere, from the gently oblique If I Loved You to the unabashed lyricism of Kathleen; from Bob's sui generis piano playing on Koonse's Longing, to the wildly twisting, turning title track. The Dutch radio station Concertzender has chosen Stay out of the Sun as disc of the month immediately after it's release.
