Album Notes
Original liner notes for "A Chicago Session":

"A Chicago Session" was recorded one Monday in December '07 on location at "Bernie's Place" – a scenic jazz hot spot overlooking Lake Shore Drive. At the grand piano, Carl Sonny Leyland turned this relaxed setting into an afternoon rent party, cutting a swinging small group session of classic blues, hot jazz and pure boogie woogie.
Carl is accompanied by the versatile Ventrella Records session men — The Modern Sounds. This big little Trio can handle any style of today's popular music. Their repertoire includes traditonal jazz, western swing, country blues, instrumental hits and, when necessary, "rock and roll."
Carl Leyland is from Southampton, England and has settled in Southern California where he fronts The Carl Sonny Leyland Trio and performs as a solo act.
On the drums is Chicago's own Alex Hall, a tasteful and swingin' drummer and a talented recording engineer. Alex sets the levels and the groove for Ventrella Records.
Bassist Beau Sample is from San Antonio, Texas and now makes Chicago his winter home. Beau is a modern day pundit of rhythm, a scholar of slappin' and walkin' the bass. He is the Austin, Texas talent scout, Ventrella's man with an ear to the ground.
Joel Paterson hails from from Madison, Wisconsin and has lived in Chicago for many years, leading his trio and playing guitar and pedal steel with several top Windy City acts. Joel founded Ventrella Records in 2001 and has recently discovered how to release a record.
