And I Love Her

Marc Copland



An all-star trio, these musicians’ “sensitive, conversational approach pushes the envelope” (Down Beat magazine); their new CD has landed on several “best of the year” lists. All three are bandleaders, whose credits would read like a “who’s who” of jazz. Pianist Copland, dubbed “the piano whisperer” because of his sense of touch, has a “harmonic concept unlike anyone else,” (Irish Times); not one to call attention to himself, he’s “a quiet giant….the stuff of legend” ( Bassist Drew Gress, one of the busiest bassists on the scene, never lets his complete technical mastery get in the way of a visceral jazz feel. Drummer Joey Baron is a perfect fit for this freewheeling, deeply communicative unit; Randy Brecker says of Baron, “He can play anything.”
