Heralded by some as "one of the finest new acoustic-jazz CD's," John Adams' CD "Jump Shot" highlights his captivating originals and unique arrangements of standards. Pianist and co-producer Warren Bernhardt (New York recording artist and musical director for the tours of "Steely Dan," Art Garfunkel, Carly Simon and others), adds his powerful and lyrical touch to this CD. Also featured is the stellar trumpet work of Marvin Stamm (who has recorded and performed with artists such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, and Stan Kenton) and drummer Ed Soph (Woody Herman, Clark Terry, et al). This recording brings together six accomplished musicians who have various long-standing musical relationships with one another.
