SCCD 31097 Visitation / Sam Jones Quintet
Sam Jones (1924 – 1981) was fondly called “Home” by all musicians who appreciated his rock solid, unwavering bass line they could always count on. This Jones’ first band since arriving in New York two decades ago features Japan’s super trumpeter Terumasa Hino and New York’s raising star tenor Bob Berg.
“ SteepleChase is hard to beat when it comes to a consistently high level of jazz recordings and this latest album by Sam Jones is well up to standard….an excellent band. …As for Sam Jones, he is in splendid form on all tracks, perhaps inspired by the feeling that he has managed to gather about him a cracking good band .” (Jazz Journal).
