Album Notes
The synergy of these two musicians is magical. Their styles blend so well it sounds as if they have played together their entire lives. Both musicians owe their style to the R&B sound of New Orleans and the Smooth Jazz sounds of contemporary jazz. Frank and Jon reside in South Louisiana and perform in lots of venues for diverse audiences. They cover styles that include blues, R&B, Funk, hip hop, smooth jazz, and pop.

For over 50 years, the unique and powerful sound of Jon Smith’s saxophone has been sought out by some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Edgar Winter’s White Trash band, Albert Collins, the Grammy Award-winning group Toto, Boz Scaggs, Philip Glass, Dr. John, Randy Newman, The Rascals, Sarah Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Doobie Brothers, and European superstar Peter Maffay, just to name a few.

Frank Ball was steeped in blues and jazz during his formative years in the Cajun Country of South Louisiana. Frank was playing R&B professionally in nightclubs by the age of 14 (things were pretty loose and free in those years). Friday night after the gig was a time to stop and jam with blues famed Roosevelt Sykes.... for a late nite jam at Troxie's Floating Palace (a WWII mine sweep that was converted into a bar on the Intra Coastal Canal). Working in New Orleans was very exciting and educational. Working in New Orleans, he played in a house band called The Jackson Brewing Company with three of the players from the renowned Edgar Winter's White Trash. Also known to sit in were players from the likes of Blood Sweat and Tears, Lou Rawls, and Ronnie Baron (to name a few.)
