About the album
First sharing a stage in the early 2010's, the virtuostic trumpeter Brad Goode and legendary saxophonist Ernie Watts met and instantly realized their incredible musical rapport. Since that day, they have been touring together and exciting audiences with their high energy, tight-rope style improvisations. “That’s Right” is their first recording together, featuring a set of modern originals, along with arrangements of "Blues in the Night," "I Want to Talk About You," and "Jug Ain't Gone," from one of Goode's early mentors, the late Chicago saxophonist Von Freeman. With the explosive Adam Nussbaum on drums, Chicago bassist Kelly Sill and the inventive Canadian pianist Adrean Farrugia, Goode and Watts create musical fire, and have a lot of fun doing it!
Der virtuose Trompeter Brad Goode und der legendäre Saxophonist Ernie Watts trafen sich Anfang 2010 auf einer Bühne und erkannten sofort ihr unglaubliches musikalisches Verhältnis. Seitdem touren sie gemeinsam und begeistern das Publikum in einer Gratwanderung mit ihren energiegeladenen Improvisationen. "That's Right" ist ihre erste gemeinsame Aufnahme mit einer Reihe moderner Originalstücke, dazu Arrangements von "Blues in the Night", "I Want to Talk About You" und "Jug Ain't Gone" von einem der frühen Mentoren von Goode, dem verstorbenen Chicagoer Saxophonisten Von Freeman. Mit dem explosiven Adam Nussbaum am Schlagzeug, der Chicagoer Bassistin Kelly Sill und dem erfinderischen kanadischen Pianisten Adrean Farrugia erzeugen Goode und Watts musikalisches Feuer und haben viel Spaß dabei!
Born in Chicago in 1963, Brad Goode grew up in south suburban Dolton, studying various instruments from the time he was old enough to talk. Goode has been Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at the University of Colorado since 2004. His energies are largely focused on teaching these days, and his students are contributing to the jazz scenes from New York to Los Angeles. In the tradition of his mentor Von Freeman, Brad leads weekly jam sessions for young musicians looking to learn their craft. Denver/Boulder has provided new musical directions and opportunities, from West African Highlife to salsa, contemporary classical to jam bands. His reputation as a virtuoso trumpeter and as an educator transcends his bebop roots and keeps him quite active.
