   When you enter the jazz soundscape created by this trio your ears will think you've died and gone to heaven! The open sound of this pianoless group gives the players ample space to explore while you, the listener, get to hear each tone and timbre (so beautifully recorded by Richard Roeder) as though you were sitting in at the session yourself! This is simply great music: mostly originals, with a few gems from Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Eubie Blake, and more. It's rare when musicians play together on a recording date with the kind of palpable simpatico heard here.                                      Total playing time: 69:15

Chris Bacas - Tenor and Soprano Saxophones
Phil Cunneff - Drums
John Leonard - Bass

 HARRY APPELMAN: BalancingBalancing.jpg (12479 bytes)

   Harry always finds the interesting stuff beneath the surface. He gets inside the chords and finds a new way out of them that is always an unexpected surprise. Here, joined by colleagues of equal taste and articulate expression, Harry gives us his personal acoustic jazz statement that's as engaging as it is enjoyable.
   Along with a couple of Harry's originals, you'll get Cole Porter and Gershwin standards and some less frequently explored works by Duke, Monk, Dizzy, Wayne Shorter, and more!
Total playing time: 52:54

Harry Appelman - Piano
Ben Street - Bass
Kenny Wollesen - Drums
plus James King - Bass, and Mike Smith - Drums (track 9)

Leave Message.jpg (13691 bytes)The CHRIS BACAS Quartet:
Leave a Message

   Chris stretches out here on tenor and a some flute in a killin' straight-ahead groove session with some pretty heavy cats. These tunes swing mightily (as only a group with a Hammond B-3 in the hands of Larry Goldings can) and they have a way of sticking in your mind long after the CD is finished playing.
  You'll hear originals by Chris and Larry Camp along with others by Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Pearson, and more.

Chris Bacas - Tenor Sax & Flute
Larry Camp - Guitar
Larry Goldings - Hammond B-3 Organ
Andy Watson - Drums
