Circuit Rider: Up Close & Personal... Hear Them Live !
Listening to Ron Miles play his cornet is a lesson in the history of the African-American music called jazz. Ron plays a one-of-a-kind, brushed gold Monette trumpet in G, not the conventional B-flat horn used by most players. He says the sound is a little deeper, and the pitch difference makes playing the horn more than a little challenging. But talk about grace and control: Ron Miles sings through his horn!
“Brian Blade is simply a force of nature. He is drummer of choice for many heroes of the music world: Wayne Shorter, Seal, and Bill Frisell, to name a few lucky enough to ride the wave of his delicacy and strength. Blade says “I feel like I need to keep challenging myself and peeling away layers to get to the core of who I am and what I have to offer." What he offers is a ‘drummer for all seasons’ enriching all who share the music with him.” JazzIs
“Guitarist Bill Frisell has found what connects all music for him: improvisation and a sense of play. Unlike others, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness. Frisell is a revered figure among musicians - like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.” The New York Times
