Robert Gordon with Link Wray

1977

Rockabilly Revival

One of America's first rockabilly revivalists, Gordon tamed with legendary guitarist Link Wray on his debut, resulting in a solid, evocative tribute to early rock and roll.

John McNeil / John McNeil Quintet

Things We Did Last Summer

August, 1983

Post-Bop

In the summer of 1983, trumpeter John NcNeil toured Europe as an instructor for the Jamey Aebersold jazz camp. Here, he closes out the tour with a live Copenhagen concert also featuring saxophonist David Liebman. This is fiery post-bop jazz punctuated by moments of dusky, noirish balladry.
