"Spectacular interpretations of legendary standards, dazzling arrangements of works by Lenon/McCartney, Sting, James Taylor and others... Brilliant!" The album With You in Mind
reaches John Adams' broadest audience, as he delivers a dynamic new hybrid of pop and jazz standards, along with three stunning originals.
A fertile, rhythmic structure is overlaid with inspired cameos, including Eric Marienthal's (recording artist, and formerly with Chick Corea) passionate saxophone, James King's soulful vocals, and Mitch Watkins' intricate guitar work. The contributions of Piper (studiowriter/producer) and McCurley (of Kirk Whalum, Joe McBride, Rick Braun, et.al.) are also prominently displayed.
Adams' bass work here conveys melodies to powerful electric solos and rock-solid grooves.
