Album Notes
Looking for an alternative to the current state of Jazz that harkens back to the eras of adventurous and imaginative improvisation wrapped in skillfully conceived, inventive compositions? Here is an album of intrepid new music that features captivating melodies and forms, infectious rhythmic dynamism and some very extraordinary soloing. The compositions have plenty of substance that will instantly appeal to wide ranging tastes in Jazz and modern instrumental music in general. The distinctive instrumentation of each piece serves to define the character and mood of the individual compositions and gives each a unique identity within the album.

One might think that being a drummer-led effort would be predictable, but the focus here derives its purpose from the traditions of such artists as Art Blakey and Mel Lewis where the leader provides support to the ensemble. There’s some very outstanding work here with all of the contributors delivering the kinds of stellar performances that have made them known voices in various Chicagoland music scenes. This is music that is at once different and familiar, compelling yet comfortable. This is what you’ve been waiting for.
