Early praise for Grain of Sand

“...McBirnie’s brilliant flute technique and sensitive style happily unite with Jones’ diverse skills and genuine gift for songwriting as they demonstrate their shared love for Brazilian music. You will sense the empathy between them immediately, right from the opening track of the album, “Grain of Sand”, where bossa nova is fused with the plaintive melody of traditional Portuguese fado. Flickering like a candle being caressed by the wind, the sound of Bill's flute enchants the listener right from the opening few bars.  And immediately following this tender opening track comes a whirlwind of samba rhythms coupled with hip-hop vocals and yet more flawless flute improvisation on “If I Stay With You”.  Just the two opening tracks portray the scope of moods in the music awaiting you on the rest of the album...”  —LEONID AUSKERN, JazzQuad.ru

“A fine album! I look forward to playing the tracks on Stolen Moments!...” —DAVID BASSKIN, Jazz.FM91, Canada's premier jazz station

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
