Barbara Jones & Henrik Bridger – This Side Up

With its lyrical melodies, rhythmic grooves, and lush harmonies, This Side Up takes the listener on a journey through the varied musical soundscape that is contemporary jazz. Pianist Barbara Jones and bassist Henrik Bridger seamlessly explore styles that include elements of upbeat pop, driving funk, sultry mood music, and samba, approaching each of these genres with a keen jazz sensibility.

Barbara’s expressive piano and Henrik’s in-the-pocket bass make this album a satisfying listening experience. Their performances are complemented by a stellar group of musicians including saxophonist Eric Marienthal, guitarists Jamie Bonk, Vince Mellone, and Stefan Rosqvist, drummer Daria Johnson, and percussionist Omar Ledezma.

This Side Up just arrived at CDBaby.
