Art Lillard w/ Art Lillard’s Heavenly Band Reasons To Be Thankful
There is so much to like about this album: so much talent, so many great tunes, and a leader whose vision the rest of us can now enjoy. Art Lillard the drummer is a lot like Art Lillard the person: thoughtful, intelligent and a great listener. So have a listen, yourself. Gravity will keep your feet on the ground but this date with the Heavenly Big Band will surely make your spirit soar.
