Drummer Joe La Barbera on his newest record - ''For the past 20 years, this quintet has given me the most rewarding musical experiences of my life. Bob, Clay, Bill, and Tom are all top notch performers as well as close friends. All this time together creates an atmosphere of relaxed interplay that results in some great music. Bob and Clay have some exceptional moments on Bite Your Grandmother
and Silver Streams
and the rhythm section is with them every step of the way. I look forward to every opportunity I have to play with these great artists.'' The CD features the exciting new suite Silver Streams
by Grammy Award winning arranger Bill Cunliffe.
