Savant CD 2043
Norman Simmons

Norman Simmons has laid down changes for some of the most illustrious names in jazz - Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Ernestine Anderson, Carmen McRae, Teri Thornton, Joe Williams, Johnny Griffin and others. One of the finest pianists on the scene today, Norman is joined by saxophonist Eric Alexander, guitarist Henry Johnson, bassist Lisle Atkinson and others for this, his second Savant release. Acting as pianist, arranger and leader, Norman has selected an interesting program of originals, jazz standards and well-known tunes, sometimes dressed up in a new, completely original setting (reference Lennon/McCartney's "Eleanor Rigby"). See what made Norman Simmons the pianist of choice for so many jazz greats.
