Ive Got The World On A String (LP)
The influential trumpeter John McNeil (born March 23, 1948) - despite his debilitating health condition which he has been fighting all his life - has a fully active career both as performer and educator. Recorded during McNeil's European tour in 1983 with a fellow American Doug Raney on guitar and the best Danish rhythm section at the time, this album caught the trumpeter at his top form.
"He seems to have the trick of drawing the best from his sidemen." - Melody Maker
"Plays his horn with a soulfulness that is rarely heard these days. [His] poetic, dusky-toned trumpet is very close to song." - Chicago Tribune
Personnel: John McNeil (trumpet), Doug Raney (guitar), Jesper Lundgaard (bass), Aage Tanggaard (drums).
