Big Band Of Brothers :: A Jazz Celebration Of The Allman Brothers Band

by

Producent John Harvey droomde al decennia lang over welke muziek zich nu leende voor een big band-aanpak. Toen hij eenmaal wist dat het vroege werk van The Allman Brothers Band daar zeer geschikt voor was trof hij de ervaren jazzdrummer Mark Lanter en samen formeerden ze de Big Band Of Brothers. Met saxofonisten, trompettisten, trombonisten en een uitgebreide ritmesectie, op vier nummers aangevuld met zangers Marc Broussard en Ruthie Foster, krijgen acht Allman-klassiekers -van It’s Not My Cross To Bear tot Whipping Post en In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed- een zeer geïnspireerde en swingende aanpak. A Jazz Celebration Of The Allman Brothers Band is een zeer geslaagd eerbetoon aan een van de beste bands ooit.

New West Records will release Big Band of Brothers A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band on November 22nd, 2019. Released in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band’s debut album, the 10-song set of jazz interpretations of Allman Brothers Band favorites features Marc Broussard and Ruthie Foster on vocals on two songs each. Big Band of Brothers A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band also features Jack Pearson on guitar, who performed as a member of the Allman Brothers Band from 1997 to 1999. The celebrated trombonist Wycliffe Gordon of Jazz at Lincoln Center fame is featured as a soloist on “Don’t Want You No More,” and wrote the arrangement for “Statesboro Blues.” Gordon is consistently ranked among leading trombone players in the Downbeat critics poll and has topped the list at least five times. The 15-piece Big Band of Brothers was produced by Mark Lanter, Charles Driebe & John Harvey and was recorded & mixed by Eric Bates at Bates Brothers Recording in Hueytown, AL.
