Hasson, Bill, American Visions


Above and Below Leon Parker (Epicure EK 66144)--"Om" is at the heart of his music as he circumnavigates such master standards as "Caravan," "Bemsha Swing" and "Epistrophy," as well as his own compositions. Leon represents a new wave of artists who are giving fresh ideas to the music. New world view on a high-hatless drum kit.
