Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Tim Ries is most well known for playing saxophone with the Rolling Stones, but his work as a composer, arranger and instrumentalist ranges from rock to jazz to classical to experimental. Ries has composed over one hundred works. This is his second release on the Smalls Live label. Recorded in November 2014, it features his quintet, comprised of trumpeter Nicholas Payton, pianist Kalman Olah, bassist Hans Glawischniq and drummer Terreon Gully.
