New Don & Dave Grusin ‘One Night Only’
My brother Dave and I recorded a two piano concert at the Rundfunks FM Radio Hall, Studio 2 in Munich, November of 2009.
CareMusicGroup.de released it in German territories in September and this is the only US-based release, starting today. You can stream it, share it, or buy it.
Here are a couple of our thoughts about doing this project, midstream in our Hang tour through Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg.
“Thinking about coming back to Germany to play music with my brother Dave brought up great memories going all the way back to the ‘60’s when I hitchhiked all through Germany, played in ratskellers, went to East Berlin through Checkpoint Charlie…Then, as now, the musical knowledge and sophistication of German audiences ranked extremely high. And we are happy to continue our long musical relationship with old friend Tom Glagow who we know back in the MCA 80′s.”
Special Thanks to Tom, to Maria Uspenski, Lee Ritenour, Will Kennedy, Wolfgang Schmid, Nils Wülker, Till Brönner, Karsten Jahnke, Björn Gissa, Rebekka Zander, Don Murray, Beate Sampson, Ulrike Schwarz, Elisabeth Panzer, and our new friend Sedal Sardan @ A-Trane in Berlin. Enjoy, Don Grusin
And from Dave…”Just adding my thanks to Tom Glagow & the rest of the gang… and of course to my little brother, Don, for allowing me to play along.“ Mit allen besten Wünschen, Dave Grusin
