Bob McHugh: Manhattan Sunrise
Feeling like you missed something? You did if you missed Bob McHughs' Manhattan Sunrise. This '94 recording is excellent choice for your collection.

Bob is a pianist,teacher,writer and composer and shares his talent along with three fellow musicians on this set of six originals and five renditions of standards.

The title song has a memorable hook very worthy of a glorious sunrise.Ray Mantilla adds percussion where called for,Kevin McCarthy lays down solid bass lines while drummer Rich Austin holds the mix together for everyone.The end result is immensely satisfying.

Stand outs include Shearings "Lullaby of Birdland","Sophia","Lay Down the Paradigm",and "I Think of You",with the latter four written by Bob and Rich Austin.

"Brighter Days" wraps up nearly an hour of music that is played with passion and inspiration.Bobs' background and previous work adds to his legacy with this disc.You'll find it sticks with you through the night and into the next sunrise.You won't feel you missed anything.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
