Roy Hargrove, Mulgrove Miller, “In Harmony”, By Larry Deniston
Roy Hargrove and Mulgrew Miller, In Harmony, double vinyl album by Resonance Records, HLP-9060, limited pressing. What a great album that I, more or less, stumbled upon. Recorded live in 2006 and 2007, mastered by Bernie Grundman with only Hargrove on trumpet and Miller on piano, this is an album that perks up your ears and draws you into the music. Hargrove’s trumpet is clear without being strident. Miller’s piano is a bit recessed in this live recording, but still very accessible. Highly recommended.
Another reason to get this album is that Resonance Records is a non-profit in support of jazz musicians: Resonance Records is a division of the Rising Jazz Stars Foundation, a California 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created to discover the next jazz stars – passionate, brilliant musicians from around the world. We assist and support them through recording, performance opportunities and distribution of their art. Every Resonance CD and DVD is produced without compromise, to create and preserve our artists’ jazz legacy.
