'Jazz Speak' Adrian Cunningham

A new recording from Aussie reeds specialist Adrian Cunningham celebrates the universal language of jazz.

Now based in New York, multi-instrumentalist Adrian Cunningham has teamed up with some of the local heavy-hitters - including John Clayton (bass), Jeff Hamilton (drums) and Ted Rosenthal (piano) - for an album that celebrates the unspoken language of jazz. It's fittingly titled Jazz Speak, and the concept evolved out of Cunningham's love for both music and travel.
