Chi-Town Sessions

Chi-Town Sessions represents jazz vibraphonist Jim Cooper’s years of playing in his hometown of Chicago.  It’s a compilation of four sessions that was recorded  between 1983 and 1990 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 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.  Thirteen musicians are featured.
