A new release from a Toronto stalwart Andy Ballantyne, with hommages to his influences.  A set of rewarding originals from a gang of greats...

You'll be able to get it here:  https://www.andyballantyne.com/playlist/play-on-words/

Farrugia came to Akron a few years back in a band co-led by Ernie Watts and Brad Goode (joined by Kelly Sill and Adam Nussbaum).  I hadn't heard of him before that night, but he and the rest of the band put on a great show.  I haven't heard Piltch or Ballantyne, but I'm intrigued by the company (rhythm section) they keep.

Now playing:

They all were so young at the time this was recorded and now Harold Mabern and Willie Thomas have left us this year, with the enigmatic Strozier the only surviving member.  What a group!

Yeah -- Adrean is FINE! and the youngest guy here...

Rob Piltch is a terrific guitarist, sort of musical son of Ed Bickert, as all guitarists should be...:D with a great range...  Andy is a deep musician, playing all the reeds with a great knowledge of styles, and is a fine writer and orchestrator for all band sizes.  Great teacher, too.  Should be much better known, but is as so many Toronto guys are, quite happy to live and work at home.

Neil and Terry are of course internationally known, as they should be.

Yes, I know it's coming out legitimately on Mosaic. Just whetting my appetite for the full meal.

These 2 CDs, one on DIW and the other on Columbia, do not have all the same tracks. There are 4 tunes on the Columbia CD that are not on the DIW, and 3 tunes31ZzsI3GdDL._AC_UY218_ML3_.jpg41c88z0HVSL._AC_UY218_ML3_.jpg on the DIW CD that are not on the Columbia CD.

Joy Spring in Performance

That's one I recorded for Sackville, so I took that one off the shelf too, John.  And followed it up with this one we did at Don Thompson's comfy home studio.

I see Delmark, who now owns Sackville has kept this duo album of Harold Mabern and Geoff Keezer (which I recorded) in the catalog...
