Marc Cary’s new release, “For the Love of Abbey” (on </span>Motema<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Records) interprets Abbey’s music in moving and emotional renditions on solo piano. &nbsp;We also hear many tunes from Abbey’s earlier recordings. In her lifetime she recorded with many jazz luminaries that included Max Roach, Bobby </span>Hutcherson<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Kenny Baron, Jack </span>Dejohnette<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Steve Coleman, Archie </span>Shepp<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Pat </span>Metheny<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Dizzy Gillespie, Victor Lewis and more.</span></div><p> Wed, 07 Aug 2013 02:00:00 +0000 31263 at http://redriverradio.org For the Love of Abbey
