Project Z Offers a Lincoln Memorial
After Ricky Keller passed away in June 2003, his bandmates in Project Z: Jimmy Herring, Jeff Sipe and Jason Crosby werent altogether sure when would be the apt time to release the disc that they had recently recorded. Finally on November 15, the bands second studio effort will be available. Greg Osby also contributes saxophone to much of the album, which has been titled _ Lincoln Memorial_. Keller had received the nickname Lincoln Metcalf from his fellow partner-in-Zambi, Col. Bruce Hampton when they began working together in the 1980s (for a bit more on Keller, read Jimmy Herrings comments soon after his passing ).
