NQC 2012: Wednesday Night

What a tiring, but rewarding day it was yesterday!  After a long, full day of driving, we made it into Freedom Hall right as Mike Speck was leading some congregational singing before bringing out the first quartet of the night.  I love the idea of Quartet Night, and I’m so glad we were able to …

The Mark Trammell Quartet, Supercharged

In this age of instantaneous global communication, I know I’m somewhere around the 200th person to make a post “announcing” the addition of Eric Phillips to the Mark Trammell Quartet.  Bro.

Top 100: #38 This Time (Mark Trammell Trio)

Release Year: 2005 Album Rank for Group: #3 of 8 Here’s a blurb: The last recording by the original Mark Trammell Trio lineup contained the group’s strongest collection of songs up to that point.  Trammell is featured on the album’s best ballads and does his usual fine job, but the uptempo songs are the best.  …
