Album Notes
Jeff Crompton is an Atlanta saxophonist and composer. "Magic Word" came about because I wanted to record new and old tunes with two other Southeastern musicians whose work I have long admired. Chattanooga native Bob Stagner, a founding member of the Shaking Ray Levis, is one of the most important figures in the Old-Timey Southern Avant-Garde; he's a pillar of the amazing creative community of Chattanooga, which deserves to be more widely known outside of that city.

Evan Lipson was raised in Philadelphia, where he met saxophonist Jack Wright; they still play together in the collective trio Roughhousing. Evan settled in Chattanooga in 2012, and has become a major force in the creative life there.

The compositions on this album range from those written in the 1980s (Magic Word, Creep) to those written just weeks or days before we recorded (Mean Streak, Big Nine Blues). During the sessions, we recorded several totally improvised pieces, two of which appear on the album.
