A heartbreaking project from saxophonist Jimmy Greene – dedicated to his daughter, who was caught in the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school. Instead of focusing on the tragedy that struck his family, Greene instead chooses to celebrate the wonderful, but too-short life of his daughter Ana – through a beautiful record that may well be his most ambitious to date! The scope of the sound here is wonderful – very soulful, thoughtful tracks performed by a shifting lineup that includes some famous names who were only happy to help out on the project – like Kenny Barron and Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Pat Metheny on guitar, and Kurt Elling on vocals. But the core group alone is wonderful –w ith ReneeRosnes on piano, Christian McBride on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – who set things up in this wonderfully soulful style that seems to evoke some of Greene's most personal moments on record. Titles include "Last Summer", "Ana's Way", "Maybe", "Little Voices", "Where Is Love", and "Seventh Candle". CD
Beautiful vibes from Bobby Hutcherson – a laidback session with a wonderfully fluid feel! There's definitely a mellower vibe here than some of Bobby's work from years back – less sinister undercurrents, replaced by a confident, yet careful tone on the vibes – given some equally sensitive accompaniment by players ReneeRosnes on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "Along Came Betty", "Somewhere", "Spring Is Here", "I'll Be Seeing You", "Ode To Angela", and "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life". CD
