Crossweave by Kim Richmond / Clay Jenkins Ensemble

West Coast meets East Coast in a 9-track compact disc called "Crossweave." Done by the Kim Richmond/Clay Jenkins Ensemble, "Crossweave" is not only innovative, but a pleasure to listen to. Alto saxophonist Kim Richmond and trumpeter Clay Jenkins merges with some of New York's best improvisers -- pianist Harold Danko, bassist Jeff Campbell and drummer Rich Thompson to produce this ensemble's third CD.

Presenting cutting-edge bebop-tinged jazz, "Crossweave's" notable tracks include "The Touch of Your Lips" and "Groovin' High," which accompany a set of originals by Jenkins and Richmond.
