Thomas Marriott, “Crazy: The Music of Willie Nelson”

Following up on the radio topping success of 2007’s “Both Sides of the Fence,” the Seattle-based trumpeter goes in a decidedly different direction with his newest recording as he pays tribute to the great musical catalog of Willie Nelson. Informed by modern electronic music yet rooted in conceptual modern-jazz, the quintet strives to preserve the spirit of Willie’s original recordings while musically searching for very new musical places. Songs include “Everywhere I Go,” “Time Slips Away,” and a rolling & majestic “On the Road Again.”
