Trombonist extraordinaire Conrad Herwig continues his spiritual journey here on his fourth Criss Cross recording, Hieroglyphica
Long reknown for his superb work with Slide Hampton's World of Trombones, the Mingus Big Band, Eddie Palmieri and, more recently, Joe Lovano and Tom Harrell, Conrad Herwig's trombone playing is bold, brash and unpredictable.
Through musical conversations with the wonderful rhythm section of Bill Charlap (piano), James Genus (bass) and Gene Jackson (drums), Conrad's Hieroglyphica speaks equally well to Herwig's prowess as a leader and composer.
Hieroglyphica is the real thing: full of compelling ideas, attitude and groove.
