Guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel's new CD, Rising Grace, will be released on ECM records tomorrow. The band includes Ambrose Akinmusire on trumpet, Brad on piano, Larry Grenadier on bass and Brian Blade on drums.
Of the music, Brad says: "Wolfgang wrote some beautiful music here and assembled a special band. Ambrose's mysterious, beautiful trumpet playing is a delicate, unexpected foil to Wolfgang's playing and writing. Brian and Larry are at their best here, and Manfred Eicher's production yielded a pleasing, finely tuned result – I'm proud to be part of this recording."
