About Beyond Up High
Vocalist Jeffrey Gimble's debut CD Beyond Up High is a mellow romp with an unusually broad selection of material. The recording features the arrangements and piano artistry of jazz great Tamir Hendelman, Bob Sheppard on sax, Ryan McGillicuddy on bass and Dean Koba & Zach Harmon on drums. The recording takes the listener on a musical ride, journeying from 'All The Things You Are' (with a vocalese written by Gimble) to Jobim's 'Agua de Beber' to contemporary tunes like Chick Corea's 'High Wire' and Bill Withers' 'Ain't No Sunshine'...
...an impressive debut that's beyond good; it's quite frankly, terrific in style, swing and swagger" - Edward Blanco, All About Jazz
...a cause for celebration...an auspicious debut jazz album" - Jack Goodstein, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
