About this album

Collaborations are nothing new in the history of jazz. Ellington and Strayhorn, Bill Evans and Jim Hall, Stanley Turrintine and Kenny Burrell are examples of artists who pooled their talent and ideas to create memorable and moving music. The Gerry Beaudoin Trio with Harry Allen is another example of this jazz tradition. Meeting at a concert together in 2009 they found an instant musical camaraderie and respect for each other’s music. That turned into a recording session months later and the recording “ Gerry Beaudoin Trio: The Return with Harry Allen”is the result of a that chance meeting in 2009. The Return features trio and quartet tracks and eight Beaudoin Compositions as well as two standards. It has been submitted for consideration for a Grammy Award nomination. Gerry Beaudoin is an award winning American jazz guitarist(1992 National Association Of Independent Record Distributors award for In A Sentimental Mood.1993 and 1995 Cadence Jazz Magazine Editors Choice Award and placement on the Grammy Awards ballot three times in his career) arranger,educator and clinician,who has released over twenty albums as a leader. Gerry has performed or recorded with many jazz and blues artists, including Ronnie Earl, Eddie “ Cleanhead “ Vinson, Jay McShann, Dick Johnson, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Duke Robillard, Lowell Fulsom, Gatemouth Brown, Dave McKenna, Alan Dawson, Howard Alden,J.
