|When Dwight West, vocalist for Amiri Baraka's world traveled jazz ensemble BLU-ARK, began this endeavor of lyric-sizing some of the greatest instrumental tunes that never had lyrics, he realized that the melodies were genius. The music had a spirit and story of its own that was waiting to be told.
The accompaniment that Dwight envisioned doing these be-bop tunes such as Claudio Roditi on trumpet; T. K. Blue on alto; Clifford Adams of Kool & The Gang on trombone; Nat Adderley Jr., son of one the Jazz Masters, on piano; the swinging rhythm section of George Caldwell on piano, Michael Logan on bass, Greg Searvance and Greg Bufford on drums, recorded with enthusiasm and eager anticipation of the release date. So click on and experience-- Tribute To The Jazz Master!
