Bill Stewart – Space SquidMarch 4, 2016 / No Comments / Tags: Ben Street, Bill Carrothers, Bill Stewart, Pirouet, Seamus Blake, thejazzpage.com
Drummer/composer Bill Stewart has assembled an outstanding collection with his latest endeavor. Space Squid is the assemblage of fantastic original compositions by Stewart met with tremendous musicianship. The production is a nice blend of swinging grooves and contemplative ballads. The one detour from the self-penned journey is a nicely done rendition of a standard by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz. Bringing this great music to life is a phenomenal quartet that includes Seamus Blake on saxophones. Bill Carrothers on piano and Ben Street on bass. This is an incredible display of musical artistry that is not to be missed.
