Alto sax legend Bud Shank is joined by pianist Bill Mays for an exciting duo album of jazz. Includes renditions of several standards including 'he Touch of Your Lips', 'I Loves You Porgy', 'Everything I Love', and 'Where or When'
This was the renewal of my association with Bill, and enclosed in this package is the latest example of what we create together when we go "Beyond The Red Door".
This underlying theme of this CD was to create happiness in the ears of hopefully a whole lot of people. Look at the wealth of superb composers we had to help us do it:
George Gershwin, Jimmy Rowles, Gerry Mulligan, Cole Porter, Zoot Sims, Russ Freeman, Richard Rodgers, Ray Noble. What did all of these writers have in common? Huge ears, good ideas, a beautiful harmonic sense, real creativity, and guess what - Passion. Thanks, guys.
