High Note, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Veteran guitarist Jimmy Ponder fronts a trio with Cecil Brooks (d) and Dave Pellow (b) for this release. The songs are all good listening classics sandwiched between two originals. The sound is warm, sweet and soulful thanks to Jimmy’s thumb technique (no pick). It is reminiscent of Wes Montgomery but still unique and certainly enjoyable,… repeatedly!
