For his third Mack Avenue Records release, 5-time Grammy Award-winner Billy Childs assembles an all-star quartet with trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Brian Blade. On The Winds of Change, the critically acclaimed pianist/composer offers 5 brand new original compositions alongside exhilarating arrangements of Chick Corea's "Crystal Silence" (originally on Corea's 1972 ECM recording of the same name with vibraphonist Gary Burton) and Kenny Barron's "The Black Angel" (originally on trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's 1970 Atlantic recording of the same name) to push the creative boundaries of the group and inspire a collective new sound to pay homage to jazz legends and the artistry.
