Stunning arrangements of rarely recorded songs composed by a select list of jazz innovators distinguish this debut recording by bandleader and drummer/percussionist Bill Ransom. The addition of horns to Pat Metheny's "John McKee," a little rice-n-beans to Miles' "Solar" and a New Orleans second line beat to Tony Williams' "Sister Cheryl" are among the boundary-pushing touches found throughout. With selections sure to become new jazz standards, "... Generations is not a showcase for Bill Ransom the drummer. It is a celebration of the joy shared... The torch passing from one era to the next." - Bobby Jackson, Music Director, 90.3 FM WCPN, Cleveland.
