Product details

Wending celebrates McGann's 75th birthday and a distinctive career that continues to demonstrate deep musicality. Long-time collaborator Lloyd Swanton thought we should match tracks still awaiting release from the Blues for Pablo Too sessions with material featuring the new rhythm section of Brendan Clarke and Andrew Dickeson. What a great idea, and we now have a double CD, rather than the expected single disc, with the characteristic mix of a carefully chosen selection from the McGann songbook of standards and popular song, and his own compositional nuggets. ARIA Finalist Best Jazz Recording 2012

Duration: 91 min.

Mex, Blues for Jackie, Fried Bananas, and Ashburner St were recorded with assistance of the Australia Council.
