Composers/performers Chris Cortez and Larry Williams celebrate their long friendship with this new recording of their own compositions, performed by a fine ensemble of instrumentalists. The result – a memorable musical happening with Cortez and Williams performing their admiration for each other in the language of compositions.
The ensemble – Chris Cortez – guitar, Larry Williams – trumpet and percussion, Dan Jordan – tenor sax and flute, Bob Thornton – piano, Walt Hubbard, Jeremy Katalenic, Jeff Sipe – drums, Marco Bojorquez, Doug Mathews – bass.
The tracks – Hermanos, Melody Makes It Happen, Glorious, Un Pedazo De Tu Sonrisa, Ask Me No Questions, Silhouette, Topaz, Polka Dot Handkerchief, Territorial Imperative, and Building On A Dream.
Small ensemble – BIG ideas!
