Description

Limited edition reissue of a classic SteepleChase LP on standard weight vinyl, cut from the original lacquers. This album recorded in 1984 finds guitarist Doug Raney in the comfortable company of his regular Danish rhythm section.

Doug Raney (Aug. 29, 1956 - May 1, 2016) moved to Copenhagen, Denmark from New York when he was 21 after a European tour with his famous guitarist father Jimmy Raney. Doug spent the rest of his rather short life in Copenhagen. He collaboration with SteepleChase started shortly after his move to Denmark in 1977 with the debut album "Introducing Doug Raney" (SCCD31082/SCS 1082). Since then he released 17 highly acclaimed leader album during the 80s and 90s.

"Blue And White is probably the best of (Raney's early releases in the 80's - ed) them, dominated by titanic performances of Jimmy Heath's 'Gingerbread Boy' and Coltrane's 'Straight Street'". - Richard Cook & Brian Morton, The Penguin Guide to Jazz

"Players of Doug Raney's depth and talent don't come along very often, making their absence, when their end does come, something almost tactile." - Larry Grinnel

Personnel: Doug Raney (guitar), Ben Besiakov (piano), Jesper Lundgaard (bass), Aage Tanggaard (drums)
