Guymon Ensley GEQ Jazz

CD - "Here Put This On"

Guymon Ensley & GEQ
Wayne Shorter

Story

I've been told that we do this tune better than the original composer and better than the original recording. "How can that be?" Wayne Shorter wrote it, Wayne Shorter and GEQ recorded it. He's one of my favorites . . . our book of full of his works.

Charlie Parker

Story

This Charlie Parker tune is most often played at lightning speed. GEQ noted that it is as effective performed in this latin rhythm style.

Miles Davis

Story

I arranged this version of Miles' "Milestones" to showcase the classical background of GEQ pianist, Phil Lesky. The interlude/solo that he takes does just that.

John "Dizzy" Gillespie

Story

Trumpeter John "Dizzy" Gillespie is one of my favorites, as is this tune written by him, "A Night In Tunisia." My arrangement of this tune is one that I heard before. I say "heard before" only because I don't remember where or by who. I've researched it but I haven't found it. We recorded it in the way that I best remember it.

Oh Yeah

Story

GEQ deviates a bit from their normal swing and groove on this one. I composed "Oh Yeah" because it represents a special time. It's a Latin style piece, but it bares that GEQ driving intensity.

This title tune to the CD has a rather bizzar story behind it. I won't write it here, but if you ask me what it is, I'll tell you.

Billy Strayhorn

Story

A GEQ arrangement of Billy Strayhorn's "A Train" is one that you won't hear often. It has a bit of a GEQ twist to it too.
