About the Album

"The Wonder of Being Here" is a track from Lafayette Gilchrist's masterful double album "NOW." "NOW” features Gilchrist's formidable group Specials Revealed with bassist Herman Burney and drummer Eric Kennedy in a program that addresses life in Baltimore, race relations in America and affairs of the heart. It’s the pianist's first trio album since 2007 and follows last year’s solo piano album, Dark Matter, which earned a place on many critics Best of 2019 lists.
