Video Premiere! Billy Hart and the WDR Big Band Cologne Collaborate on The Broader Picture
Drummer Billy Hart has worked with Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, and Miles Davis, among many other jazz greats. The ever-young Hart has never lost his thrill for new music, however, as evidenced by The Broader Picture, the recently released collaboration with Swiss-German arranger Christophe Schweizer and the WDR Big Band Cologne. The recording sets original Hart compositions from his small-group albums Enchance (1977), Rah (1987), and Oceans of Time (1997), among others, within a full big band context. Check out this exclusive video featuring footage from the recording sessions.
