Album Description

Stamm/Soph Project Live @ Birdland - Recorded 9/11 & 913/2003 - Jazzed Media JM1006 A second outing for The Stamm/Soph Project, Live at Birdland, produced with co-partner drummer Ed Soph, showcases Marvin Stamm’s working quartet. This CD features long-time band-mates pianist Bill Mays and bassist Rufus Reid with special guest guitarist John Abercrombie. Stamm says, “Working with these musicians always produces very special moments. None of us takes these events for granted or looks upon them as just another gig. Each of us really comes to play!” John Abercrombie, an extraordinarily sensitive and gifted musician, joins the quartet on four of the eight tracks. Among the tracks are originals by Stamm, Mays, and Reid as well as one each by saxophonist Ted Nash and pianist Lars Jansson. Stamm says, “For me, performing with this group is a pinnacle of sorts because these are the guys with whom I want to play; they are my choice!” Producer: Marvin Stamm Recording and mixing engineer: Jim Anderson Recorded at Birdland/Mixed at Studio 505, NYC, NY Mastering: Alan Silverman, Arf!
