Album Notes
Conversations involve an exchange - a giving and a receiving. The best conversations occur when the partners are really listening to each other. Jazz is conversation. Here we have five musicians one May day in Toronto, having conversations with each other. This recording was done with no rehearsal and only a few charts. What you're hearing is mostly the first or second takes. This is a rarity to hear "live" undoctored music these days. And what a treat it is to hear bassist John Lamb (former bassist for Duke Ellington) in conversation with his Canadian friends north of the border.

The "North of the border" musicians all believe that jazz should be fun and you can hear them enjoying themselves with these wonderful conversations. Their music together builds a wonderful bridge across the border.

John Lamb is a Musical Genius
I love this C.D. The musical conversations played by John and friends are a great listening experience. Their music transcends generations. My 12 year old niece loves this C.D. as much as I do. Thank you John Lamb and friends for allowing us to listen to your wonderful music.


Great CD !
Wonderfully put together. The album is just as advertized. Communication musically. For a refreshing experience, i recommend this!


One of the best
Every time John Lamb comes out with a new cd I always purchase it. John is an excellent bassist!!!!!!! Great CD...Enjoyed listening to all the selections. I bought several copies and gave them as gifts.


Great Mix
I enjoyed this cd so much....I love Jazz and this cd did not dissapoint....all the songs on this cd were beautifully presented....the instruments blended very well....the flow of the music was so smooth....that my 12 year old daughter....who frequently turns her nose up at my music.....actually enjoyed it and wanted to hear it again and again....her favorite was "Little Suede Shoes"....I would recomend "Conversations" to any Jazz lover.....
