More details

CD 12,39 €

The ambiance on When We Find Ourselves Alone is similar to what Rodney Whitaker generated on his turn-of-the-century gems Winter Moon, Ballads and Blues: The Brooklyn Session and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow on which the leader drew repertoire from several stylistic tributaries. Now, as then, Whitaker and company address the leaderís five originals and six arrangements with an old-school feel and a 21st century attitude. They follow the time-tested jazz aesthetic, embracing the tradition of navigating the long-standing forms with individualistic tonal personalities, ebullient soulfulness and an unending will to swing.
