Criss Cross Jazz 1199 CD

Tim Ries

Alternate Side

On Alternate Side, his second Criss Cross session, the saxophonist-composer Tim Ries, who toured with the Rolling Stones in 1999, addresses six melodocentric, challenging originals, a reshaped bop era classic, and the little-known Stones "New Standard" Moonlight Mile from the "60s.

Joined by an A-list ensemble, Ries sings through his horn throughout the multiple contexts of the recording, displaying a singular musical personality.

Sidemen: Greg Gisbert - trumpet, Michael Davis - trombone, Ben Monder - guitar, Larry Goldings - piano, organ, John Patitucci - bass, Billy Drummond - drums and Stacy Shames - harp.
