What a nice surprise this is.
If someone were to give me an unmarked copy of this album and tell me it was some hot new group of young lions that Blue Note or Columbia's jazz division had signed and was actively promoting, I'd be fingering my chin hairs while thinking, "You know, this time, the hype machine is correct." But these eight songs, or nine if you count the remix of the title track that appears as track nine, are by a group of musicians from my hometown (Sacramento), led by composer, bandleader and bassist Harley White, Jr., which White released through CD Baby. I've been listening to these bluesy numbers, which echo a number of jazz greats but specifically (at least to me) Count Basie, on my daily commute for a couple of days now, and I can tell that not only won't I grow tired of them anytime soon, but they're even turning up in those moments of silence when I'm not listening to anything. So if you love jazz with a pronounced bluesy flavor, this record will set you just right.
