Inner City Records is proud to announce the re-release of Charles Sullivan's 1974 debut album Genesis. Sullivan, an under-appreciated veteran of the jazz scene, garnered widespread acclaim for this album upon its release, including a five-star review in DownBeat Magazine. Genesis features five original compositions by Sullivan, and includes players Sonny Fortune (alto sax), Dee Dee Bridgewater (vocals), Billy Hart (drums), Alex Blake (bass), and others. An historic album, long overdue for release on CD.

“Charles Sullivan deserves full honors for this lyrical debut album. Each of the compositions is Sullivan's own, as are the simple but effective arrangements which forge a collection of talented sidemen into an inspired ensemble... Sullivan has created a satisfying aural experience, an acoustic set electrified with feeling, alternating blue and brightly burning." --DownBeat Magazine

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
