We’ve recorded a new CD and are preparing for its release in November, 2014! I’m so proud of this new record. It was an incredible experience to make this music with David Cooper, Tim Whalen, Mark Urness and Ernie Adams. They all played with so much heart and intelligence. I hope you enjoy this music – our message to all of you!
We’re planning a CD Release Party at the Brink Lounge, in Madison, WI on Nov 25th. I hope you can join us!
Here’s a nice, brief writeup about the new CD, Carswell, from Jeff Berkwits over at the Illinois Entertainer. http://illinoisentertainer.com/2010/07/around-hear-july-2010/
“Imagine hanging out late one night at a smoke-stained jazz club like the Green Mill, listening to proficient players enjoying a fun jam session. That’s the intoxicating effect of Carswell, the latest 10-tune recording from sax-man Tom Gullion. While standout numbers include the energetically improvisational “Monkey’s Tale” and the evocative electric piano and flute of “Right On Time,” every cut is consistently captivating.”
Thanks Jeff for the great review. I know how difficult it is to condense thoughts into such a tight space but I think he did an excellent job.
I was also contacted by BRAVA magazine in Madison (a magazine for “women of style and substance”) that they’re recommending Carswell in their August issue. All right! All you “women of style and substance” need Carswell on your iPod. 🙂
Last weekend was incredible! We had a great time performing at Magnus in Madison. The crowd was really great, the staff at Magnus were really kind to us. All good. All very good. 🙂
I am so fortunate to be able to make music with these incredible musicians: Tim Whalen (piano), Mark Urness (bass) and Dane Richeson (drums). But you don’t have to just take my word for it, give these tracks a listen.
