Tom Ferguson Trio: Tom Ferguson, piano; Tom Warrington, bass; Steve Houghton, drums.
An old piano pro known for his incredible work as a sideman and accompanist has now stepped forward as a leader of his own trio. A la Tommy Flanagan who also spent many years as a sideman and accompanist, Ferguson quickly establishes his solo credentials, as well as his compositional skills with three originals of his own. This CD swings; it caresses; it flows; it gets down! From the soulful "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" to the gentleness of the love theme from "Spartacus," and from the easy latin rendition of "I Remember You" to the driving title tune "Say When" this album grooves!
