About Jim McNeely Trio. A harmonically advanced pianist and a developing arranger, Jim McNeely has had a few notable musical associations in his career. After graduating from the University of Illinois, McNeely had a stint with Ted Curson (1976-1978) and was an important member of the Mel Lewis Orchestra (1978-1984), Stan Getz's Quartet (1981-1985), and, during much of the 1990s, the Phil Woods Quintet.
A good deal of Jim McNeely's recording projects since the mid-'90s involved various large ensembles, so this 2001 trio date provided some variety. The veteran pianist, accompanied by drummer Adam Nussbaum and bassist Lennart Ginman, chose a wide-ranging program, kicking off with a simmering "You and the Night and the Music" that adds a new face to this old chestnut.
