Although The Jericho Notes recording was completed in 2004, it's just being released now. But, it's jazz. Happily, there's no best before date. Having said that, a critic at the well regarded U.S. publication, Jazz Week, ranked The Jericho Notes 6th best recording of 2004. Just ahead of Alice Coltrane and Al Jarreau. Perhaps there is a best before date. Time will tell.
The foundation of the recording is a trio comprised of Robi Botos, on piano, Mike McLelland, on drums and Peter Holmes, on bass and vocals. They're joined on various tracks by horn players Kevin Turcotte, William Carn, Chris Mitchell, Sean Nykwist and Alexis Baro.
The Jericho Notes was written and produced by Peter Holmes, with Igor Vrabac for the Flatacre label.
