SCCD 31361 The Very Thought Of You / Louis Smith & Jodie Christian

During the “Silvering” (SCCD 31336) session, trumpeter Louis Smith cut one track just with pianist Jodie Christian playing a quiet ballad. This track was not included in the release but the idea of making a duo album stayed with him. Thus, this reflective and melodious recording materialized.

This is music to refresh the mind, body and spirit at the close of a fraught day. It’s pure ear balm, in fact. Beautiful jazz, too, of course .”
