Eclectic Mix Of Standards & Pop Tunes on SACD!
Harold Mabern was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1936 and spent some of his
early years in Chicago before moving to New York in the early 1960s. There he
began to work with Lionel Hampton, Art Farmer's Jazztet and J.J. Johnson. Mabern
has accompanied many vocalists including Joe Williams, Sarah Vaughan, Dakota
Staton, Irene Reid and Arthur Prysock. He's also worked with Roland Kirk, Sonny
Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Roy Haynes, Wes Montgomery, Clark Terry,
Billy Harper, Joe Newman and George Coleman. On this record, he's joined by Joe
Farnsworth and Dwayne Burno.
"Fusing the always fashionable bop/funk school with the classic American
Songbook, Harold Mabern remains extremely relevant: younger rock bands and music
writers should listen to this musical giant, as their music will surely improve
if they do. He has a big and commanding style, with tremendous appeal. Discover
the big hands and richly melodic, ringing sound of Harold Mabern for yourself."
