CTI stands for Creed Taylor Incorporated, better known as CTIRecords, the famous jazz/fusion record label. Creed Taylor willprobably not be known to everyone. However, since the Grammysuccess of Getz/Gilberto in 1963, Creed Taylor has been one of thefew people whose songs many people can hear in their dreams. Notsurprising, given his great accomplishments as the producer forJohn Coltrane, George Benson, Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard andmany others. This hints at great musical quality that under thedirection of Creed Taylor himself finds its expression in the CTIAll Star Band. He constantly reforms the band for recordings andthe performance of special material written specifically for hisline-up. Only the world's best are considered and that deliversexceptional combinations. During the summer of 2009, the CTI AllStar Band consists of famous artists like Randy Brecker (trumpet),Hubert Laws (flute), Bill Evans (saxophone), Russell Malone(guitar), Niels Lan Doky (piano), Mark Egan (bass), Jeff "Tain"Watts (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion) and special guest FloraPurim (vocals).
