On the Origin Records Label

 

 

"Outrospection" is the second musical collaboration between bandleader Rodney Whitaker and jazz composer Gregg Hill. The first being "Common Ground" on Origin Records in 2019.

 

This collection of 11 original tunes "...was made in 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. The players were all socially distanced in their own isolation booths, and there wasn't much rehearsal time. But the long histories of the players have with each other and the rewards of Hill's sophisticated compositions paid off in music that's focused, polished and inspired. "Making recordings with Gregg is really about love, respect, and friendship," said Whitaker. "That's what you hear."
