Album Notes

Luther Hughes and The CCP have returned to the studio to record their third CD, a continuation of their tribute to the sound, style and music of Cannonball Adderley and/or John Coltrane. All 5 band members have written songs for this album (8 of the 12 tracks are original compositions) and they are, well, spectacular!


The CCP continues to perform at numerous clubs and jazz festivals as well as educating aspiring jazz students at band clinics. In addition to their first two CDs, Luther Hughes & The Cannonball-Coltrane Project and Second Helping, the band has also released CCP Live!, a live performance video DVD.


LUTHER HUGHES - leader & bass. Luther has performed or recorded with such greats as Gene Harris, Quincy Jones, Hampton Hawes, Louis Bellson, Charlie Shoemake, The Crusaders, Carmen McRae, Horace Silver, James Moody, and Mundell Lowe. Luther teaches at Cal State Fullerton, Fullerton College, Saddleback Community College and the Jazzmasters Workshop, all in Southern California. He also performs at jazz festivals and clubs worldwide.

GLENN CASHMAN - tenor sax. Holding a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Composition, Glenn currently is Director of Jazz Studies at Colgate University in New York. Glenn has released two CDs, ”I’ve Got Your Rhythm,“ featuring Kenny Barron, and “Blue and Green” with Tom Ranier. He’s performed or recorded with Claudio Roditi, Gary Foster, Jeff Clayton, Rob McConnell, Gap Mangione, and many others.

BRUCE BABAD - alto sax. Bruce is the Director of Jazz/Commercial Studies at Fullerton (CA) College. In addition to venues in the So. Cal. area, he has also performed at the North Sea and Montreux jazz festivals. In addition to leading his own group, Bruce has performed with such artists as Natalie Cole, Mel Lewis, Bobby Caldwell, and the Bill Holman Band. He appears on over 75 recordings and numerous jingles, TV and movie soundtracks.

ED CZACH - piano. Ed is a freelance musician and performs internationally. He holds a B.M. and M.M. from the Eastman School of Music in Rodchester, NY. Ed has performed or recorded with such notables as Clark Terry, Mel Tormé, Chuck Mangione, Bill Henderson, Doug MacLeod and The Jazz Coop. He also serves as musical director for a number of artists. Ed, is affectionately called “groovedog” by the band members because he grooves so hard.

PAUL KREIBICH - drums. A much sought-after drummer in the So. Cal. jazz scene, Paul also leads two of his own groups, The Jazz Coop and Lonesome Tree. He has played or recorded with such world-class artists as Ray Charles, Carmen McRae, Nancy Wilson, Red Rodney, Mose Allison, Phil Woods, James Moody, Cedar Walton and the Woody Herman Orchestra to name a few. And like bandmate Luther Hughes, he is an alumnus of the Gene Harris Quartet.
