Reissue with the latest DSD remastering. A strong 70s recording by a group that was mostly known as the Cedar Walton trio – the group of Sam Jones on bass, Walton on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums – recorded only for the Japanese market, and a heck of a record! The set's got one standout feature that sets it apart from some of the other sides by the Walton group at the time – the use of a string quartet on a few of the tracks, which creates some great interplay between the core trio and the augmented strings.
September 22, 2017 is the release date for Harvesting Minds, Italian trombonist Filippo Vignato’s debut album as leader on the CAM JAZZ label. After his first album, Plastic Breath (Auand, 2016), and being nominated “Best New Talent” in 2016 by the Musica Jazz magazine’s prestigious Top Jazz index, Vignato brings together some of the most influential young European musicians for a new, fully acoustic quartet: Giovanni Guidi on piano, Mattia Magatelli on double bass and Attila Gyárfás on drums. The electric atmospheres of his debut album are only apparently distant from the dry sounds of Harvesting Minds: in the passage between these two works emerge the sharp musical vision and the personality of Vignato that, together with his uncommon talent for composing, trace a coherent and evolving path.
