ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From The Archives explores the stellar talents of two of jazz's most exciting artists, Arthur Barron (tenor & flute) and Hilton Ruiz (piano), and features among others jazz giants Dave Liebman (soprano) and Jerry Gonzalez (flugelhorn & congas). From the opening soulful interpretation of John Coltrane's "Lonnie's Lament" to Ruiz' gorgeous ballad "For Pearl" to the superb Latin Jazz ensemble piece "El Montuno De Hilton Te Toca Barron," the intensity and excitement never falters.

Arthur Barron, jazz saxophonist, flutist, composer and bandleader, is a seasoned performer with a sound of his own, known for his passionate playing and eclectic flare for styles. Barron has played with Hilton Ruiz, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Mike Gerber, Delmar Brown, Dave Liebman, Jerry Gonzalez, Mario Rivera, Melton Mustafa, Steve Berrios, Carlos "Patato" Valdez and Mongo Santamaria, among others. His main recordings have been Impressions with the Afro Blue Band on Milestone Records along with Dragon Rose Records releases Soul Messenger, Late Nite Time and Footprints (co-led with Hilton Ruiz).

Hilton Ruiz is one of the greatest pianists in Latin and Straight Ahead jazz. He has played with Freddie Hubbard, Pharoah Sanders, George Coleman, Joe Henderson, Frank Foster, Clark Terry, Charles Mingus, Betty Carter and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. He is a long time friend of Arthur Barron and has collaborated with Barron on a number of recordings. Ruiz' compositions appear on the soundtracks of the academy award winning "American Beauty" and Woody Allen's "Crimes and Misdemeanors." He has been awarded the Certificate of Special Congrssional Recognition for outstanding and invaluable service to the music community.
