When Hayes reformed this band that he co-founded in the late ‘60s with Freddie Hubbard and Joe Henderson, Louis purposefully deviated from a conventional quintet lineup by featuring a vibraphone / tenor saxophone frontline. It’s the esteemed pair of Steve Nelson and Abraham Burton, respectively, and their chemistry with Louis, pianist David Bryant and bassist Dezron Douglas makes Return of the Jazz Communicators an inspired and rewarding set of music.


STEVE NELSON, vibraphone (except 10)
ABRAHAM BURTON, tenor sax (except 4)
DAVID BRYANT, piano Dezron
