"NO GRAVITY" ...the feeling of freedom, of not being pulled. "This CD is a welcome addition to the catalog of jazz recordings which document the sax/vibes combination. But it is more than that. Broad in it's scope, the wide spectrum of material here is executed with great craft and artistic consideration by all of these fine musicians. Highly recommended"...Joe Locke "This music is very interesting in composition, arrangement and structure. The solos presented are superb and well programmed. I highly suggest this CD to listeners of all genres of music." ...Richard Davis "I love your CD" ...Mike Marshall The Klobas/Kesecker Ensemble: Pat Klobas: double bass Tommy Kesecker: 3.5 Octave vibraphone, marimba Gene Burkert: woodwinds David Rokeach: drums Special Guest Artist Zakir Hussain: tablas Bassist Pat Klobas and vibraphonist Tommy Kesecker have joined forces to create a sound they can call their own. The vibes-bass-woodwind-percussion instrumentation is used to explore original compositions and jazz classics alike. Johnny Mandel's film noir classic "Barbara's Theme", Thom Bell and Linda Creed's funky "People Make the World Go "Round" and Benny Golson's "Along Came Betty" are arranged and performed by the Klobas/Kesecker Ensemble with flair. Featured guest tabla master Zakir Hussain lends his brilliance to the project with his uncanny ability to take the music to another level.
