Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

BILLY BANG QUINTET FEATURING FRANK LOWE

Above & Beyond: Live in Grand Rapids

2007-07-17

No one knew this would be Billy and Frank's last collaboration, but the performance is so intense you get the feeling they might have had a hint. Frank Lowe played the show with one lung, and according to the liner notes, post-show the promoter wanted to call a medic he was so out of breath. I knew this would be an easy add for our radio station considering the sound quality and the fact that it was recorded right in our home town, but this release is seriously hard to put down. We are proud to be a part of this release, and hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do. - Pete Bruinsma
