First Listen: Billy Childs Rebirth

First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor RadioThe Right Sound For the Right Price.

Billy Childs has been known more as a producer /arranger over the last ten years or so

but before that he was known for throwing down with the likes of Freddie Hubbard or J.J. Johnson on any given night. The pianist returns to the performer chair with Re-Birth and it is quite stunning. First sonically the recording sounds fantastic and you want a showcase for the highest level of jazz arrangements in 2017…this is it. The players need to be at the top of their game to tackle this intricate and complex music that jumps out of the speakers. Steve Wilson, Eric Harland, Hans Glawischnig are up for the challenge.
