Bassist Ray Brown spent 15 years in the Oscar Peterson trio. Since then, he's never fallen off the jazz map, becoming a mainstay in the mainstream with his own swinging, bop-smart trio. His "Best Friends" series has also elevated the dialogue of collective ensembles, integrating seasoned elders and neophytes into his expanding band. With this release, Brown brings singers on board; from the savvy old-world swing of Etta Jones to the hip post-bop of Dee Dee Bridgewater, he moves both smoothly and solidly. There are also particularly strong surprises, from Kevin Mahogany's deep blue's tracks to Nancy King's under heralded excellence. Also includes support from other well know jazz artists including Diana Krall and Marlena Shaw. This release contains Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering & UHD 32-Bit PureFlection Manufacturing Process. Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering is a proprietary ultra-high-quality mastering system. This disc is playable in all CD Players.
