George Schuller:
Lookin' Up from Down Below
LOOKIN' UP FROM DOWN BELOW coverLatest in a long line of musical Schullers, George is one of Boston's (and New York's!) favorite jazz drummers and composers, as well as being the driving force behind the popular little big band Orange Then Blue

For his first recording as leader, George has assembled some of the top players from New England's extensive jazz scene and set them loose on a collection of his own tunes.  A stunning, visionary debut from a mature and gifted musician.

(See also George's recordings as leader of Orange Then Blue.)

"A quality release, with just enough challening 'out' playing to interest the die-hard avant-guardist and enough mainstream appeal to be accessible to the rest of the listening public."   ŚCadence
