Quote: "I listen to jazz quite often, and even though this CD release is considered 'indie,' this CD rates in the top 5 of my all-time jazz CD favorites."
By Denise Squier
As a fan of jazz music, I can sum up this CD in one word: WOW! This CD brings together some of the finest jazz musicians I have ever heard because of one man — Tim Duffy. For those who have not heard of Tim Duffy, he was a man who didn’t let his dream of this project die because of a stroke. Duffy did not just dream of this project, he produced, wrote and/or co-wrote every song as well as played on a few of the tunes. His relationships with Cecil McBee and Reed McRoberts, along with the respect of fellow jazz musicians, allowed him to create a wonderful CD for the jazz enthusiast.
Some of the notable musicians which appear are Carmen Lundy, who adds some of the best jazz vocals I had ever heard, especially on “Autumn," and my personal favorite, George Cables on piano. As a pianist myself, what Cables is able to do on this project is phenomenal.
I listen to jazz quite often, and even though this CD release is considered “indie," this CD rates in the top 5 of my all-time jazz CD favorites. In the liner notes, Bob Frank states: “Tim’s dramatic comeback from a near-death event to produce this beautiful, soulful music is truly an inspiring, powerful statement of the triumph of Life, Love and artistic expression," and I cannot state a better review than that.
