Earlier this year, bassist Gerald Cannon brought a septet to Dizzy's Club that included a front line of Joe Lovano, Eddie Henderson, Sherman Irby, and Steve Turre, along with pianist David Kikoski and the drummer Lenny White. The music features the music of two of Cannon's former employers, Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner and the performances were captured in an energetic live recording. In this episode of LINER NOTES Gerald reflects on lessons learned in his time playing with Jones and Tyner. We also talk about his other passion—painting.

This episode features music from Gerald Cannon's upcoming release Live at Dizzy's.
