Rick Jones Standard Time
Some samples from Rick's "Standard Time" CD.
RICK JONES - STANDARD TIME
Jazz trumpeter Rick Jones goes from Maynard to Miles on his new CD STANDARD TIME. Rick currently lives in Las Vegas but for this CD he returns home to take a “musical snapshot” of the Milwaukee jazz scene and legendary guitarist Manty Ellis.
STANDARD TIME is a collection of standards performed as you would hear them if you went to a jazz club in Milwaukee the result is spontaneous and real. The CD was recorded at Sound Sound Studios in Milwaukee with the exception of “I remember Clifford” which was recorded with Milwaukee born pianist Billy Wallace at Rick’s studio in Las Vegas. The CD includes Dorothy Dale singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” in dedication to our men and women of the armed forces.
Milwaukee has been known as a jazz oasis for decades and these recordings offer a portal to that haven.
