Tom Harrell: First Impressions

Album Remarks & Appraisals:

"Both Debussy and Ravel transformed the world of music by creating a new sensibility of beauty of sound," says trumpeter/composer Tom Harrell, who himself is known for his superb lyricism and poetry in his playing and writing. With his nine-piece chamber ensemble, Harrell interprets the works of these two French composers and blurs the boundaries between jazz and classical music. The personnel includes the members of his working band of over 10 years - Wayne Escoffery, Danny Grissett, Ugonna Okegwo and Johnathan Blake as well as notable jazz woodwind player Charles Pillow on flutes and three string players who are equally adept at classical and jazz repertoires - violinist Meg Okura, cellist Rubin Kodheli and guitarist Rale Micic.
