Many mainstream pop and soul hits eventually find their way into the hands of jazz artists. Not all interpretations are successful, but those that are can make a powerful impression. This is the direction Jazzhole takes with Blue 72 (Beave Music, 2014).
The group consists of Mark Robohm, drums; Scott Colley, acoustic bass; David Inniss, electric bass; Daniel Sadownick, percussion; John Pondel, guitar; Keith Slattery, Fender Rhodes; David Binney, saxophone; Gary Pozner, organ and Clavinet; Warren Rosenstein, organ; Sam Friedman, harmonica; and Peter Mark, additional percussion.
The concept of Blue 72 is to reimagine hits from the year 1972.
