Bill Mays Trio Live at COTA (no blooze music)

This is Bill Mays’ 35th recording as a leader in an overall discography that exceeds 150 recordings as leader, sideman or collaborator. His CDs on Palmetto Records with Matt Wilson and Martin Wind are among the most memorable in his career. After 12 years they have reunited to make this live document of where they were musically on September 9th, 2018. COTA refers to Celebration of the Arts, the annual jazz festival held in Delaware Water Gap, PA. Bill says, “Matt’s and Martin‘s contributions are extra special because not only are they wonderful soloists but they’re also composers and arrangers.
