Artist/Band:Bob Rockwell
Name:The Joker
Cat No.:MMEX-112
Performed by:Bob Rockwell (tenor sax)
Kasper Villaume (piano)
Jesper Bodilsen (bass)
Rusmus Kihlberg (drums)
Release Date:03/21/2007
Description:American-born veteran tenorman Bob Rockwell has lived in Copenhagen since 1983, and recorded several exciting albums for the Japanese Marshmallow Records. His latest album was recorded in 2006 when Rockwell toured Japan with a Scandinavian trio consisting of Danish Kasper Villaume on piano, Jesper Bodilsen on bass, and Swede Rasmus Kihlberg on drums.

The main character and the focus of the recording is clearly Rockwell, who plays authoritatively throughout, hinting influences from Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson and Hank Mobley. It is indeed a kick to hear such a straight-ahead, soulful tenor saxophone player today in a swinging, funky set like this!

Recorded direct-to-two-track in June 2006 at Sugita Theatre, Yokohama, Japan; Mini-LP paper sleeve edition with English liner notes.
