Pianist/keyboard player Jon Cowherd is best known for his association with drummer Brian Blade's Fellowship—a group he co-founded in 1998—but as a producer and arranger too, there are clearly other strings to his bow.
Cowherd's keyboard collaborations with jazz, country and rock artists including singers Cassandra Wilson, Rosanne Cash and Iggy Pop point to his versatility, so it's maybe something of a surprise that his debut as leader, firmly rooted in the jazz idiom, is so stylistically homogenous.
