The somewhat anonymous-sounding New Sound Quartet is a special group formed solely to record for Japanese jazz label Eighty-Eight's.
The combination of vibraphones or marimba and the piano as main instruments gives this group its unique sound. They bring interesting new ideas to well-known standards and provide intelligently-written originals. Trumpeter Eddie Henderson guest stars on Locke’s dreamy, landscape painting-like “Snowfall in Central Park.” Recommended!
Produced by Yasohachi “88” Itoh. Recorded by at Avatar Studio, New York on March 6, 2005. Mastered by Tohru Kotetsu, JVC Mastering Center. Limited-edition, X-Compound LP directly cut from original analog master tapes.
