Description

Classic 1980s SteepleChase recording from award-winning American saxophonist/composer Bob Rockwell featuring Butch Lacy (piano), Jesper Lundgaard (bass), Jukkis Uotila (drums), now repressed on standard weight vinyl. This limited pressing is from the original matrices.

Rockwell grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and after touring the USA with various rock and R&B bands in the late 60s and early 70s Rockwell settled in New York to seek his place in jazz. He established himself quickly playing with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Tito Puente, Ben Sidran, Freddie Hubbard, Ray Drummond, Billy Hart, Tom Harrell, Richie Beirach, among others, demonstrating his immense skills and versatility.

Since 1983 Rockwell calls Denmark his home where he leads his band and performs and records all over Europe. Rockwell recorded eight leader albums for SteepleChase. This his second release features the late pianist Butch Lacy (1947-2018), another American expatriate of his generation.

"Rockwell is simply one of the heaviest players in his genre anywhere." - Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes

"Bob Rockwell is a warm-toned tenor player whose love of Coltrane becomes most apparent at higher intensity levels. For most of the time this is spirited but non-too-aggressive modern tenor playing." - John Robert Brown, Jazz Journal on 'On the Natch'
