Thumbs Up

Hailed as "The Segovia of Jazz" by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jimmy Ponder continues to quietly make his own brand of jazz in Pittsburgh and its environs. Heard here for the first time in a trio setting, Ponder shows a more introspective side but still manages to serve up a tasty concoction consisting of jazz tinged with his trademark blues-funk overtones. Featuring such great standards as "Love for Sale", "Body and Soul", and Legrand's great "Watch What Happens" Ponder, in the company of bassist Dave Pellow and percussionist Cecil Brooks III, offer a program of great jazz, played with integrity, technique and no small amount of swinging heat. So, to quote the vernacular, "Kick it up a notch!" with the Jimmy Ponder Trio. BAM!

Jimmy Ponder- guitar; Dave Pellow- bass; Cecil Brooks III- drums.

Tracks: Thumbs Up; Watch What Happens; Centerpiece; Body and Soul; Love for Sale; Angel Eyes; Alone Together; Funk Wit Dis.
