They made the decision that a small handful of traditional carols, with a message of peace, would make it onto the album. The result is <i>Come Sunday</i>. It was recorded in February 2010, shortly before Jones' passing.<br /><br /></p> <p>These masters were able to put the "spirit" in spiritual, with Haden's haunting bass lines and Jones' versatility. The beautiful result of this meeting of two great minds is a record of recognizable pieces presented in a way you've never heard them. ?</p> Mon, 02 Jan 2012 18:41:00 +0000 Maureen Malloy 2684 at http://wrti.org Maureen Malloy Recommends...

They have a unique, distinctive style, but blend in easily performing with orchestras and vocalists. They stand out at certain times, but then long stretches of time go by when no one can find them. Well, they're back, and better than ever on <i>Sophisticated Ladies</i>.<br /><br /></p> Wed, 27 Apr 2011 14:55:00 +0000 Maureen Malloy 2524 at http://wrti.org Maureen Malloy Recommends...
