Hobbs, Steve / Quartet - Vibes, Straight Up
Although I have spent a lot of time in Boston, Miami, Denver and Queens (New York), I was born and raised in Raleigh. I left when I was 18 and came back when I was 32 in 1988. All along, I have watched the South change from a narrow minded area to a very progressive area in a 52 year span of time...hopefully the way I have arranged these traditional songs, will show both the tradition of where jazz and the South have come, to more of the changing global/metro direction in which they are rapidly moving....Old or new, it's mostly southern tunes, with a New York flavor. Enjoy the ride!"
Steve Hobbs (vibes), Bill O’Connell (piano), Peter Washington (bass), John Riley (drums).
