For this project critically acclaimed saxophonist and composer Jack Wilkins researched Appalachian Mountain culture and environment as the inspiration for a series of new compositions. The compositions combine the musical inspiration of American roots music -Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Mountain music, New Orleans traditions- (the Blue' element) with the subjective inspiration of Appalachian Mountains - the people, artists, craftsmen, traditions and environment (the Green' element).

"The Blue & Green Project offers a paradigm modeled on good cheer, clear-sighted vision, hope and impressive musicianship, intimating a top-shelf selection for 2011.'' -Jazzreview.com

''Wilkins is a tough roving tenorist, and his conceptions vary from track to track. There's little that is self-consciously folkish in this Jazz suite where Green stands for the natural world and Blue the insinuating influence of Jazz and world musics. I especially liked TWO VIEWS OF THE MOUNTAIN, which suggested a barn dance taken to a basement Greenwich Village Jazz club, the mournful Mingus-tinged 25 CENTS, and the second-line New Orleans BLACK BUCKET STOMP, energetic and creative throughout.'' -CADENCE MAGAZINE
