Description

Mike Richmond, Grammy Award-winning bassist with vast experience with leaders such as Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Horace Silver, Jack DeJohnette, Gil Evans, Chet Baker to mention a few, leads here his own group with cello as his instrument, for the first time.

Cello as a jazz instrument is still a rarity but its history goes back to the '50s when Oscar Pettiford broke new ground. Richmond put together this all-Pettiford-composition album to honour the pioneer.

"Dance for Andy is one of those rare CDs that sustain interest through a 70-minute-plus duration." - Richard Cook & Brian Morton - The Penguin Guide to Jazz

"Richmond is as nimble fingered and resourceful a bassist we have heard in some time." - New York Daily News

Personnel: Mike Richmond (cello), Peter Zak (piano), Jay Anderson (bass), Billy Drummond (drums)
