ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album features two internationally recognized and recorded jazz artists: Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, piano and vocals, and Marty Erickson on Tuba. Check out their individual websites at www.wycliffegordon.com and www.martytuba.com for the most complete information including biographies, photos, schedules and discography.

The artists met while performing with the Brass Band of Battle Creek, a professional Brass Band based in Battle Creek, Michigan which assembles thirty-two of the finest musicians in the world (28 brass and 4 percussion) to perform concert tours and record CDs.

This CD features two tunes based on the old "street musician" idea: "Back Home Again in Indiana" and "I'm Going to Sit Write Down and Write Myself a Letter" use only trombone, tuba, voice and "brushes on a box" (in this case--a cajon) to simulate the street jam session. On "Multiphonic Intoduction" and "BaloozieVocalisetusietoon tune" the players trade cadenzas singing and playing simultaneously before this great Wycliffe original.

"You and I" also features two arrangements and one original tune by jazz pianist/composer Ronald Newman, who plays on this CD. Pay attention in particular to his chart on "My Romance," which starts with a trombone and tuba low brass choir (with Wycliffe and Marty overdubbing all parts) and morphing into an upbeat Latin feel.

Overall, this CD simply finds the groove on every tune, and you can't help but smile in the listening; especially when Wycliffe scat sings with his own special "lyrics!"

Enjoy, and thanks for buying the CD!!

You and I
This is another great Wycliffe Gordon album with a very fine artist, Martin Erickson. Excellent arrangements of old favorites plus original tunes plus super-scat singing plus sweetest notes equals happy listening at its best!
