Featuring A-list guests like legendary jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and versatile saxophonist Ernie Watts, "It?s About Time" garnered 4 ½ stars from the All Music Guide recently and the same rating from Japan?s top jazz magazine, Swing Journal, upon it?s original release. This gem documents the debut recording of bassist/producer Brian Bromberg on acoustic bass, using the same 300-year old instrument he played while touring with jazz giant Stan Getz at age 19. Recorded in 1991 the project has been re-mixed and re-mastered, sounding as fresh as the day it was recorded. Other featured players are Mike Garson and Mitchell Forman (piano), David Bromberg (drums), and Doug Webb (saxophones).
Nice Acoustic Project !!!

"Brian took a break from his contemperary work to record this excellent acoustic project. Great job on the remastering sounds way better than the old version with new cover art. Highly Recommend!!!"
Bromberg at his best

"It's funny how some artists can have such widely different styles in different contexts. Pat Methaney's like that; love his small ensemble work, but when he gets together with synthesizers...
Same for Bromberg. He's known first as a virtuoso player of the electric bass, in the manner (if not the style) of Victor Wooten or perhaps Michael Manring- the sort of technically impressive playing that I find emotionally uninvolving. Then there's his "smooth jazz" playing. And last, his acoustic upright bass playing heard here, and on the magnificent "Wood".
When Bromberg picks up the upright, he drops all the virtuoso riffing and scales and focuses on the music, and the result is wonderful. I wish he'd do a lot more like this one."
