T's Butter - Marvin Stamm
Marvin's up-tempo tune, based on the changes to Sonny Rollins', Oleo, takes off from the "get-go." From there, the only place to go is UP. http://www.marvinstamm.com presents "Alone Together," featuring Marvin Stamm, trumpet; Bill Mays, piano; Rufus Reid, bass; and Ed Soph, drums. These video clips are from the new Marvin Stamm Quartet DVD and CD set, "Alone Together." The concert from which this DVD and CD were filmed and recorded took place in California on November 5, 2006, following a week of performing concerts on the Jazz Cruise. One can talk and write about music, but in reality, it is all in the listening - and in this case, the seeing. As expressed by reviewer Dave Miele in JazzImprov magazine Jazz is a live music. "It's meant to be heard and seen in person." Marvin Stamm: "I have much love and respect for these marvelous friends - Bill Mays, Rufus Reid, and Ed Soph - and for the music we create together. After my many years as a professional musician and these last seventeen years concentrating only upon performing as a Jazz artist, it is most rewarding to be at this place in this time in my life. It is a good place to be."
