New Dan Wilensky Quartet Record: "Back In The Mix"
Dan Wilensky's Back In The Mix features Mark Soskin (piano), Dean Johnson (bass), Tony Moreno (drums), and special guest Russ Johnson (trumpet) in a musical tour de force.
Wilensky's 4th recording as a leader includes new arrangements of Cole Porter's Falling In Love With Love," Gross and Lawrence's Tenderly," Lament" by the great J.J. Johnson, and six new Wilensky originals. The creative virtuosity of long-time band mates Dean Johnson and Tony Moreno propel the group to greater heights. Russ Johnson, recently featured in Lee Konitz's band, and Mark Soskin, a longtime member of Sonny Rollins' group, are simply superb.
