The Hard Bop era was one of the most exciting and vibrant times in the history of black American music (jazz). Developing as a reaction to the intense and abrasive music of the bebop era, Hard Bop drew influence from rhythm and blues, gospel and soul music to create a style of jazz which was danceable, vibrant and appealed to a much wider audience. The Nick Ford Hard Bop Tribute Quintet pays homage to the incredible music of this time, featuring some of the most influential pieces of the era by a wide array of legendary players and composers.
