Mills Record Company

With his second Origin release, Jared Hall directs his attention to the influences that first kindled and then nourished and sustained his life path as a trumpeter/composer. Thoughts of Woody Shaw, Tom Harrell, Wallace Roney and others provided the inspiration for the 8 original compositions, along with Gigi Gryce's "Minority," while their adventurous spirits, technical brilliance and commitment to a voice infuse the performances by Hall's quartet. Miami-based, Grammy-winning pianist Tal Cohen's exhilarating interplay along with the dynamic lift from Seattle's Michael Glynn on bass and drummer John Bishop launches "Song for Shaw" with a '70's momentum. They deliver an expansive warmth on "Dear Roy" for Hall to reflect on Roy Hargrove within, and the tribute to his main mentor Brian Lynch, "Professor B.L.," is imbued with a Latin-tinged fire. "... Hall's expressive, probing trumpet style, offers a masterful, wide ranging sound, and varied emotional landscape." - -PAUL RAUCH, All About Jazz
