Greg Murphy’s newest release “Cool Water” is resonating with optimism and wonder

“Cool Water is a jazz album partly inspired by music artist Greg Murphy’s trip to Africa; the title refers to the Nairobi River which flows through the capital of Kenya. Another prominent influence on the ambitious collection is the joy of exploration and discovery with friends. The music is a celebration of camaraderie, resonating with optimism and wonder. Highly recommended! The tracks are “Chim Chim Cher-ee”, “Green Earrings”, “My Life”, “Theme For Ronnie”, “Friendship”, “Free Fur Nina”, “Enkare Nairobi”, “Body And Soul”, “Coolin’ Me Out”, “Lost”, “Cuttin’ Trane’s Corners”, and “You Decide”.”
