Ron Kearns Live at Montpelier
This CD features a new group of players from the previous three. The Ron Kearns Quintet on this recording has performed together for the past two and a half years. The group features a Sax/Trombone frontline similar to early Phil Woods recordings but has it's own unique flavor. This live CD captures the flavor and feel of this group in a live setting and as you listen you forget it's a live recording until you hear the applause. The energy and genuine fun the group is having comes across very affectively on this recording. On Spice and Sugar the group sounds like the Jazz Crusaders of the 1970's.
