Album Notes
THORNTON BROTHERS record new jazz CD
It's been a long time coming! More than six years after Child's Play was recorded, Bruce & I got together with Jim Ridl on piano and Eric Halvorson on drums to knock out an entire all original CD in one day at Peter Karl Studios in Brooklyn. We had a great time and have a beautiful product to show for our effort.

Ironically, Jim Ridl grew up in our home town of Dickinson, North Dakota, though I actually just met him a few years ago at Birdland after hearing his duo with Pat Martino as part of the JVC Jazz Festival. He performs and records with his own group and also plays regularly with Dave Liebman and many others. Eric Halvorson has been one of my closest friends for over twenty years. We met and first played together at the University of Iowa. Eric is in heavy demand and keeps very busy in the NYC music scene.

The CD consists of eight original tunes, five of Bruce's and three of my own. We are very happy with the overall sound that was achieved and are grateful to engineer Jonathon Townes and the wonderful atmosphere at Peter Karl Studios, as well as Matthew Zimmerman's mixing at Wildsound in Minneapolis.
