Barney McAll: Flashbacks @ Jazz Standard 4/8/09

Another great recommendation from The 9:30 time was perfect. It was lively, engaging, great jazz. I was very impressed with all of them. The bass played electric and acoustic, and I liked both. Each of them caught me at different moments. It was a nice time.

His native Australia just wasn’t big enough to accommodate a talent the size of Barney McAll. So this fine pianist and composer relocated to NYC and now celebrates the release of his forthcoming CD Flashbacks (due out 4/8/09) with this much-anticipated Jazz Standard one-nighter. His all-star sextet will include guitarist Ben Monder, trombonist Josh Roseman, and veteran tenorist Billy Harper who says: “Barney is a genuine musician, not just a skilled artist. There’s a certain touch that I’m talking about. It’s hard to explain, but he has that.”
