Burt Conrad All Stars - Forward Looking Backwards

Six must-hear Burt Conrad original compositions combined with six sizzling renditions of classic jazz standards give rise to one unforgettable album, Forward Looking Backwards. This disc features jazz classics like Stanley Turrentine’s “Sugar” and blues standards like “Born Under A Bad Sign”. Older songs and new compositions mix and mingle like bubbles in a champagne flute, flowing effortlessly into Burt’s original compositions like the Conrad penned bossa nova “Take My Hand" featuring Brazilian songbird Raquel Lima. For many, it’s the opening track, “5 To 4”, a blazing smooth jazz original with Burt Conrad blowing a Miles Davis trumpet on his guitar synthesizer.
