“I thought about my life and all the musical relationships I’ve made around the world…I though about the great players I’ve played with in the past, and the new kids on the block that I play with now. I thought it would be great to gather some of them together to hang out and jam. I knew this thing would kill. Welcome to The Hang!” — Don Grusin
When 18 of the greatest artists in contemporary music get together to hang, the result is more than just great music. It’s history.
“The Hang is a jam session like no other, performed by a top-notch group of pedigree musicians from around the globe, brought together by the acclaimed keyboardist Don Grusin, whose belief in the power of collaboration and spontaneity certainly makes good here. The stellar lineup includes the Grammy-winning vocalist Patti Austin, saxophone greats Ernie Watts and Sadao Watanabe, and percussionist Alex Acuna, as well as Grusin himself. Grusin has been a creative force in the music world for years and sports an impressive career history that includes 9 solo albums, participation in the acclaimed fusion ensemble Friendship, and the production and arrangement of many other albums, including a Grammy-winning record for Ernie Watts. The magic of improvisation shines through in this high-quality production as the group plays a selection of hits from throughout Grusin’s career and ranging from African rhythms to contemporary jazz, creating an innovative and exhilarating experience of an uncommon ilk.” — AllMusic
