Double Exposure

Some cats just seem to fall out of bed swinging, full of fire and forever fanning those flames. Cecil Brooks III is in this exclusive coterie. One thing you can always count on when Cecil Brooks sits down to the drums, regardless of the context, the music will snap, crackle, pop, and most of all, it swings! Here CB3 is joined by a another B3, namely the Hammond B-3 of the legendary Gene Ludwig. Gene's been a busy fellow lately, appearing at the 2001 San Francisco Jazz Festival; Birdland in NYC; and the 2003 Stanford Jazz Festival, several gigs at The Blue Note in NYC and a special appearance at the Blue Note in Las Vegas. Gene has been playing Trumpet's and later the Newark Museum of Art Summer Jazz Series (2004). While there he struck up a musical freindship with Cecil, playing the drummers jazz hot-spot and producing this great session for Savant.
