Best Jazz Recording Denver 2002 - Exposed
Fred Hess Quartet
Creative Improvised Music Projects
Exposed is about as pure a jazz CD as you're apt to find: Like all Creative Improvised Music Projects offerings, it was recorded directly onto a computer without compression, echo or any post-production tampering. As a result, listeners can hear every nuance in regularly enthralling performances by saxophonist Fred Hess and his worthy associates: trumpeter Paul Smoker, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Damon Short.
