Seven Steps to Heaven: Ray Brown Trio with Ulf Wakenius in a set that combines mostly old favorites and a couple of Ray's originals, this album is all about "the groove." The amazing Ulf Wakenius is featured on guitar, along with Benny Green on piano and Gregory Hutchinson on drums Live at Scullers: Ray Brown Trio
Benny Green and Gregory Hutchinson once again team up with Ray in a rare live session at the famed Scullers nightclub in Boston. Ray's masterful arrangements of all-time classics include "Freddie the Freeloader," "Bye, Bye, Blackbird" and "If You Only Knew."
"If You Only Knew" unfolds into a veritable tour-de-force so musical as to merit required-listening status."
