For Jimmy, Wes And Oliver (2Lp)


The GRAMMY Award-winning Christian McBride Big Band Returns with a Spirited Tribute to Jazz Icons Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery and Oliver Nelson. Features Longtime McBride Collaborators Joey DeFrancesco and Mark Whitfield. In September 1966, organist Jimmy Smith and guitarist Wes Montgomery got together at Rudy Van Gelders famed studio and over the course of three days, the two jazz icons recorded the material for two now-classic albums: The Dynamic Duo (1966) and Further Adventures of Jimmy and Wes (1968), backed by a big band featuring arrangements by the great Oliver Nelson. That pair of electrifying outings would prove seminal for another dynamic duo over the ensuing decades: bass great Christian McBride and master organist Joey DeFrancesco. For Jimmy, Wes and Oliver echoes the format of the original Smith/Montgomery summit meetings, with a balance of big band and quartet tracks. To complete the core band, McBride called on another longtime friend and collaborator, Mark Whitfield, to play the Montgomery role, while regular CMBB drummer Quincy Phillips anchors the ensemble.
