Carl Sonny Leyland With The Modern Sounds / A Chicago Session

Ventrella CD released in 2008 featuring blues and jazz pianist-extraordinaire Carl Sonny Leyland, backed by The Modern Sounds. Carl Sonny Legend is a legend on the blues, rockabilly, boogie woogie, and ragtime piano scenes, he is one of the true greats. The Californian was passing through Chicago on a tour in 2007, and we jumped at the chance to make an album with him.  "A Chicago Session" was engineered by Alex Hall and was recorded in about five hours on the afternoon of December 17, 2007. The CD has a relaxed, jam session feel that recalls the small group swingtets of the 1930s and '40s.

Featuring: Carl Sonny Leyland, piano and vocals; Joel Paterson, guitar; Beau Sample, bass; Alex Hall, drums
