A NOTE FROM
THE WEBB BROTHERS
“I am truly honored and privileged to be apart of The Ernie Edwards Trio. Ernie as a bandleader has challenged me to become more open to interpretation and emotion. Ernie is the bridge connecting the traditional styles of Erroll Garner, Art Tatum, and respectively Oscar Peterson. I honestly believe that his purpose in life is to preserve the traditions of these artists. Not only is he superb in the genre of jazz, but also he is very versatile ranging from classical to the deep roots of traditional gospel music.
To Ernie Edwards and Vision Ventures, I thank you for the journey.”
“It has been a joy to collaborate with Mr. Edwards over the past several months. In regards to interpreting the music of his long time idol Erroll Garner, Ernie is a living scholar. Mr. Edwards has broadened my spectrum in the repertoire of the older classic pop songs in the American Songbook.
I am honored to add my contributions to this project.”
