It's always a joy to introduce a promising new artist to the jazz world,
especially one as mature and self-assured as
tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene.
Assisting Jimmy as he offers this program of orginal compositions and standards
are two top artists from the Criss Cross Jazz roster,
trumpeter John Swana and
trombonist Steve Davis.
The rhythm section has
pianist Aaron Goldberg,
bassist Darrell Hall and
drummer Eric McPherson.
An ex-student of Jackie McLean, Jimmy plays with the Harry Connick Big Band
and is a member of the new Horace Silver Quintet now.
