Chi-Town Sessions represents jazz vibraphonist Jim Cooper’s years of playing in his hometown of Chicago from 1983 to 1990.  It’s a compilation of four sessions and features fourteen outstanding musicians. After sitting on the shelf for years, Cooper decided it was wise to transfer the many reels of music he had to CD.  Upon hearing the music again, he decided it was just too good and released it on his own Jazmyn Records label. 

 

The CD also documents Cooper’s association with saxist/arranger Gordon Brisker and Bob Dogan, a Chicago pianist with stylings rooted in blues and bebop.  The music is all original from Cooper, Dogan, Brisker and guitarist Akio Sasajima.
