Ira Sullivan Presents: Lin Halliday – East of the Sun
Delmark DE 457
Lin Halliday has captured the attention of Miles Davis, Pearl Bailey and her bandleader husband Louis Bellson, and comedian Lenny Bruce. In addition to exploring interesting tonal textures, Halliday also plays very close attention to the structures of melodies. Like his idols, Sonny Rollins and Charlie Parker, Halliday arranges his melodies and musical phrases so that they not only agree with each other, but also tell a story.
