Live at St. Nick'sSalim Washington (Tenor Saxophone), Donald Smith (Piano), Melani Dyer (Viola), Ku-Umba Frank Lacy (Trombone), Aaron James (Bass), Mark Johnson (Drums), Donna Cumberbatch (Vocals)Salim Washington, though well respected in the artist community, has recorded sporadically over the past 20 years. This powerful recording of his septet captures them at New York City's St. Nick's Club where Salim has been playing a regular Friday night gig since 2005. It's a favorite place for him and you can feel the connection—not just between the musicians but also with the audience. Very live, very hot intensive program, and a special and unexpected vocal by Donna Cumberbatch on the last performance on this special night. Mountain AirDominic Duval (Bass), Ron Lawrence (Viola), Gregor Huebner (Violin), Tomas Ulrich (Cello)Dominic Duval's String Quartet, previously known as the CT String Quartet, has been around and documented since the mid 1990s. This new edition introduces the extraordinary Gregor Huebner into the violin chair on a program which takes as its inspiration the music of Cecil Taylor's "Mountain Air." Extemporaneous and totally music of the day, yet easily accessible and rooted.
