This album will mark the first time that Carrington and Patitucci have a recorded a full album of straight ahead acoustic jazz together. They are old friends and have recorded tracks on a variety of albums, but nobody has ever heard the amazing work they can do on a program of straight ahead and standard tunes. Celebrated saxofonist Tia Fuller will join the recording session with her contributions on two tracks.
Lewis Porter has performed on piano across the USA and Europe with Dave Liebman, Joe Lovano, Gary Bartz, Wycliffe Gordon, Ravi Coltrane, Marc Ribot, and many others. Joe Lovano called his last album “a wonderful recording full of inspired trio excursions and beautiful solo explorations…Bravo !!!” Now he will be recording with his friend Terri Lyne Carrington, the amazing drummer who has won multiple Grammy awards, and the equally celebrated bassist John Patitucci.
The album will present original compositions by Porter including a dynamic Suite for Coltrane, as well as standards such as "Bye Bye Blackbird," and the profound Curtis Mayfield tune "People Get Ready."
