Ches Smith and These Arches - Finally Out Of My Hands


Ches Smith, one of the most inventive drummers in modern jazz, has assembled an unusual all-star quartet comprised of some of the most in-demand members of New York’s creative music community. Finally Out of My Hands, the debut CD by These Arches, bristles with an electrifying vitality, striking sparks from the friction between memorable melodies and aggressive improvisation. Featuring saxophonist Tony Malaby, guitarist Mary Halvorson, and accordionist Andrea Parkins.
