Album Notes
This kind of jazz is meant to be played loud!

'Blues For Soli' features a suite of four new songs inspired by the Arch Stanton Quartet's tour of Egypt last year, along with five other original pieces.

It begins with the “Lady Egypt Suite,” named for the bus company and its driver, Soli, who escorted the band between performances in Cairo and Alexandria. The suite includes: a quirky take on Middle Eastern cuisine (“Kofta”); a hard swingin’ ode to the swanky Zamalek neighborhood of Cairo (“Zamalek”); a freeform composition inspired by traditional Egyptian melodies the band overheard at a hotel wedding in Alexandria (“Groovin’ At The Azur”); and a blues number (the title track) honoring the band’s indefatigable driver throughout the tour (“Blues For Soli”).

Other songs on the new album include a smoky ballad in the “St. James Infirmary” mold (“Aphorisms”); a swampy funk-groove tune with lots of twists and turns (“Dungoode Bayou”); the propulsive “Floodgills”; the rock-funk-fusion and swing of “Striped Water”; and a dreamlike waltz to close out the record (“Convection Zone”).
