WAM March 23-24 Liner Notes - Jeff Johnston

Playing together since the mid-80's, pianist Jeff Johnston, bassist Jim Vivian, and drummer Mike Billard have performed and recorded albums with internationally acclaimed guests like trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, guitarist John Abercrombie and saxophonist Dave Liebman.

But this time around, it's the main group on its own.  On today's Liner Notes we feature the new Jeff Johnston Trio cd, Returning.

Recorded at the prestigious Pierre Marchand studio in Montreal, produced by their long-time friend Glen Tilley, the cd Returning shows off the almost telepathic interaction the band has developed over their history.

Jeff writes all the material for the group and I called him in Montreal earlier this week to talk about the new disc.  But first, here's a sample from Returning.
