“Your life will be greatly enriched” by Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band’s sixth album, Life in the Bubble.
Or at least that’s what bandleader Goodwin has to say.
The 10-song collection (seven of which are originals) features the Grammy-winning band, featuring Rick Shaw on bass (he also plays with Johnny Mathis, Bill Holman, and Chick Corea,) in top form. Goodwin said the players have “set a new standard for the band,” on this record.
You can hear more of what he has to say here:
The non-originals on the record include the “Get Smart” television show theme, “On Green Dolphin Street,” which won a Grammy for Best Instrumental Arrangement, and “Party Rockers” with vocals from Judith Hill, most recently known for her appearance in the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom about successful rock/pop backup singers.
