Billy Childs has announced his latest album The Winds of Change.
In his third release with Mack Avenue, the Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger is joined by an all-star quartet consisting of trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Brian Blade.
“I have been doing all of these lofty projects, chamber things, symphonic things… I wanted to just get back to being a jazz pianist,” Childs says. “Fortunately, these extraordinary musicians find my music interesting enough that they want to be a part of it.”
