Lilian Terry Meets Tommy Flanagan
“Sharing this album is Tommy Flanagan, who is not merely the principal accompanist; the plan of the album is clearly that of co-equals creating a joint expression. Lilian’s choice of Tommy was inspired, for he is not only a superb soloist, but his classical performances with Ella Fitzgerald have established him as the finest collaborator any singer could hope for. And it says a great deal about Lilian that Tommy would not appear with just ordinarily good singer.
Accompanying Lilian and Tommy are Jesper Lundgaard, the latest “great Dane” in a series of brilliant young Scandinavian bassists, and Ed Thigpen, one of the most highly regarded drummers of the post-bop era. With Tommy Flanagan, they form a rhythm section whose variety, skill and subtleties provide a broad rhythmic range in setting this album’s foundations.”
