CrossWeave cover This, the third recording under the dual leadership of trumpeter Clay Jenkins and altoist Kim Richmond, represents an evolvement and a branching out. The title is "CrossWeave" and presents cutting-edge bebop-tinged jazz.
The sidemen are among the best of New York improvisationalists, evidence of Clay's present link with the East Coast. Though he still works often in Los Angeles and other parts of the country, Clay is now on the jazz faculty at Eastman School of Music. Kim continues to work in and out of Los Angeles.
