It’s here now!  Order from the web site...

Trio New York LIVE…or in this case Trio Willisau LIVE

Ellery Eskelin - tenor saxophone
Gary Versace - Hammond B3 organ
Gerry Hemingway - drums

Recorded live at the Jazz Festival Willisau, Switzerland, August, 2015

This new CD recording is from a live performance at the Willisau Festival in Switzerland last August.  I wrote a bit about the gig in a previous post and am very happy to report that hatOLOGY records has just released the project in their inimitable style and packaging, including a full color photograph of the band on an enclosed postcard. Hear our extended improvisations on "My Melancholy Baby", "Blue and Sentimental", "East of the Sun", "We See", and "I Don't Stand A Ghost of A Chance With You".

So, get your hands on a copy and wrap your ears around the latest sounds from the New York / Willisau axis. Take this link to my official web page and have a look at all of the titles available for immediate world wide mail order.  To further commemorate this release I will be instituting a special sale, for a limited time only.  The standard price per CD is $15.  Choose any two discs for $25. Choose any three discs for $30. Very simple.

Please note that I have added a couple of additional titles to the CD ordering page:

  1. Thank you Ellery, the concert was my highlight of last year's festival – and the CD is a worthy document! I am also a big fan of the well-written liner notes. Looking forward to hearing you soon, best
