Live at Sweet Rhythm

Origin Records, 2010

“Given the stature of the performers, it comes as no surprise that the playing is magnificent. The leader’s own well-constructed solos reflect his solid status as a composer.”


The reunion of this incredible band, consisting of renowned trumpeter Tom Harrell, saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi, bassist Mike Richmond, drummer Jeff Williams, and pianist Richard Sussman was captured in a rare and exciting performance live at NYC jazz club Sweet Rhythm in June, 2003.

Besides some of Sussman's tunes from the original Free Fall recording, the band also explores several new originals as well as a few standards that showcase the spectacular talents of soloists Tom Harrell & Jerry Bergonzi.
