Im sooooo happy to say that Cellar Live finally has a NUMBER 1 record! The only thing that would make this better is if it was one of mine…..but……if I’m gonna be beaten by someone I would want it to be by one of my best friends IAN HENDRICKSON-SMITH.
I just got word that next week’s JAZZWEEK chart has IAN HENDRICKSON-SMITH’S SOUL OF MY ALTO record at #1! Our previous high was #4 which was my UP STEP: The Music Of Hank Mobley record. This really couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Ian takes so much pride in the WHOLE production of his recordings it nice to see that perfectionism and meticulousness rewarded this way! Its a fabulous album and its the cats on it are smokin’ ADAM SCONE and CHARLES RUGGEIRO are tremendous musicians!
