Eskelin, Ellery / Andrea Parkins / Jim Black
One Great Day
Released in: Switzerland
"In some ways I think that a recording is the best medium for this music. I can think of a lot of music that speaks better on a recording than it does in a club where the environment and the audience's expectations exert an effect on the music. With this recording we've found a mix between the two. Writing music for this band has been a real breakthrough for me. Andrea and Jim have ears for anything I put in front of them. It's a great feeling to have a band that can realize your ideas and offer its own surprises along the way. - Ellery Eskelin
I'm gratified that the rerelease of One Great Day... coincides with its inclusion in the Penguin Jazz Guide's "The History of the Music in the 1001 Best Albums". Of course there are countless recordings deserving of attention and reissue. This group managed to tie together the fractured reality of my musical universe at the time. The acknowledgement is appreciated."-Ellery Eskelin, from the liner notes.
