Inveterate swinger Joe Farnsworth assumes the role of bandleader with a very special quartet that includes longtime colleague Eric Alexander as well as esteemed jazz masters Harold Mabern and Buster Williams. Farnsworth is the extraordinary drummer who has been heard frequently in groups led by artists such as George Coleman, Pharoah Sanders, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton, McCoy Tyner, Wynton Marsalis, and many others. The New York Times states, “Joe Farnsworth is a briskly swinging drummer, especially persuasive with the dialect of hard-bop.” The Daily Telegraph (UK) adds “drummer Joe Farnsworth was especially impressive, conjuring a whole battery of cross-rhythms and yet always being a rock-steady support.”
