Classic 1980s SteepleChase recording and the fifth release by trumpeter/composer/educator John McNeil on SteepleChase. It took place during the summer of 1983 in Denmark at jazz club Montmartre as a part of the graduation concert of the famed Jamey Aebersold Jazz School. This limited pressing on standard weight vinyl is from the original matrices.
John toured Europe as a member of the staff of the Jamey Aebersold Jazz School and led this exciting group consist of the fellow “all-star teachers”: Dave Liebman, Jim McNeely, Ron McClure and Ed Soph. McNeil made this concert as a field study of “how-to-make-a-live-recording” for the students in the audience.
One of the most influential trumpet players today John McNeil released his first album ‘Embarkation’ (SCCD31099) in 1978 on SteepleChase and gained wider recognition as a member of the Horace Silver Quintet in the late 1970s. McNeil in recent years has been in great demand as a writer, arranger and record producer.
