About the album
Steve Hobbs - vibraphone | Bill O'Connoll - piano | Peter Washington - bass | John Riley - drums
Although I have spent a lot of time in Boston, Miami, Denver and Queens (New York), I was born and raised in Raleigh. I left when I was 18 and came back when I was 32 in 1988. All along, I have watched the South change from a narrow minded area to a very progressive area in a 52 year span of time...hopefully the way I have arranged these traditional songs, will show both the tradition of where jazz and the South have come, to more of the changing global/metro direction in which they are rapidly moving....Old or new, it's mostly southern tunes, with a New York flavor. Enjoy the ride!"
