1. think like a mountain (exerpt)
2. post-occupational hazards for the pre-occupied 99% blues (exerpt)
Recorded in 2010, this was the break-out solo album from trombonist and composer Andy Hunter, after years of working as a sideman with such greats as the Mingus Big Band, Richard Bona, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Dave Holland’s Big Band, the Birdland Big Band, T.S. Monk, and Ochun, along with co-leading cutting edge New York groups such as the dynamic quartet, SPOKE.
“Think Like A Mountain” is a musical homage to the intersection of cities and nature, inspired in part by Aldo Leopold’s “A Sand County Almanac.” The album has a lineup of fantastic New York musicians, most of whom played with Hunter in the Mingus Big Band at the time of the album’s recording. Alex Sipiagin (trumpet), Jason Marshall (baritone saxophone), David Kikoski (fender rhodes keyboard), Boris Kozlov (acoustic bass) and Danny Fischer (drums).
