Album Notes
For All Those Living, the latest release from Sheryl Bailey, debuts the versatile virtuoso
guitarist’s new working quartet featuring pianist Jim Ridl, bassist Gary Wang and drummer
Shingo Okudaira. The followup to her critically acclaimed big band tribute to the late Emily
Remler, A New Promise, For All Those Living is Sheryl‘s first recorded outing leading a group
with traditional piano, bass and drum accompaniment. Inspired by the classic recordings of
Wes Montgomery with the Wynton Kelly Trio, Bailey, dubbed “a sizzling guitar goddess” by
Elliot Simon in AllAboutJazz, displays a somewhat more refined approach to her instrument
here without sacrificing the distinctive originality that she has become known for as leader the
Sheryl Bailey 3, unquestionably of one of jazz’s edgier power trios.

Cited by Vintage Guitar magazine as “one of the top players in an emerging generation of
guitar players,” Bailey, in the decade and a half since taking third place in the 1995 Thelonious
Monk International Guitar Competition, has proven herself to be a compelling instrumentalist
in a variety of settings. Hailed as “a modernist burner with an abundance of Pat Martino-style
chops” by guitar authority Bill Milkowski in Jazz Times, on For All Those Living Bailey teams
up with the master guitarist’s frequent collaborator, pianist Jim Ridl, to advance the
Montgomery-Martino straight ahead jazz guitar tradition on a program comprised of eight
brand new original pieces that prove her to be just as talented a composer as she is a player.

The eighth release of original compositions on her own PureMusic label, Bailey has long been a
believer in Art Blakey’s dictum that “creating new music is the jazz tradition.” On For All
Those Living the new pieces are focused on the theme of healing and hope twenty percent of
the proceeds from the sale of cd’s will benefit New York’s Ronald McDonald House where the
guitarist has long contributed her talents as an instructor through a relationship with the New
York Pops) and are in her words, “connected to the people and places that affect my life.”

Worth living for!
I have to say that I love the likes of Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, Tal Farlow, Emily Remler, Kenny Burrell, to name just a few, but as can be seen, notably male artists....Sheryl can certainly hold her own to all of them!!...This album swings like blaze's and Sheryl's fellow group members support her all the way!...Not quite 5 stars but 4 and ¾ is as close as it gets!
