SCCD 31365 Getting' There / Mickey Tucker
Mickey Tucker is no stranger to SteepleChase label. His Blues In Five Dimensions (SCCD 31258) and Hang In There (SCCD 31302) were not only the successful albums but also marked his return to leading his own sessions.
This time Tucker flew in to Copenhagen from Australia where he resides these days to make his first solo recording ever in the SteepleChase studio for its Fazioli solo recital series.
“… a beautifully rounded portrait of a most sensitive solo performer whose willingness to ‘face the music’ head -on is quite simply masterly…” (from the linernotes by Mark Gardner)
