Expert pianist, composer, and arranger Laurence Hobgood has long been a great friend of Naim. In the ’90s he recorded two highly acclaimed albums for the label in the group Union, and a further two as a solo artist: Left To Own  Devices (2000) and Crazy World (2005) with the Laurence Hobgood Trio. Described by Dave Brubeck as “one of the most incredible pianists I have ever heard,” Hobgood has been directing Kurt Elling’s Blue Note (and now Concord) recordings for 15 years, and accrued his very own Grammy  Award nomination for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying a Vocal Performance for his work on Elling’s Flirting With Twilight (2001). Long regarded as one of the worlds’ greatest living bass players, Charlie  Haden was a great admirer of Hobgood’s early work for Naim. Haden has worked with all manner of musicians in the jazz world and beyond, achieving massive critical acclaim. Pre-eminent male jazz singer Kurt Elling adds vocals on three tracks. Elling, who now records for Concord/Universal, has a rich baritone voice that spans four octaves and displays astonishing technical facility and emotional depth. He has accumulated seven Grammy Award nominations. Will be agressively promoted with jazz radio and publications.
