NYC-based saxophonist/composer Adam Niewood was born into musical pedigree with a jazz saxophonist father and classical pianist mother. The composer of the tunes recorded here is Adam's father, Gerry Niewood who rose to his fame in the 70s and had achieved a successful career until his untimely death 10 years ago. Adam with his dream rhythm section dedicates this album to his father.
The A-list group includes three of the most-respected names in contemporary jazz - guitarist John Scofield, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Jack DeJohnette.
"...craftsmanship and attention to detail is also evident in his music. Adam Niewood has a distinctly powerful, supple and soulfully intelligent presence." - Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz
Personnel: Adam Niewood (soprano & tenor saxophone), John Scofield (guitar), John Patitucci (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums)
