Album Notes
Currently in its second incarnation, Layabout, a Los Angeles-based jazz/pop trio founded by native Texan keyboardist and vocalist Edward “Tex” Miller, continues to astound its local and regional audience with a unique brand of piano music that touches equally on Ben Folds and Steely Dan, while incorporating harmonic elements from the works of such luminaries as Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel and evoking the thoughtful rhythms of Bill Evans.

Miller’s compositions and arrangements – equal parts Elvis Costello, Donald Fagen, and Kurt Wagner (of Lambchop) – are fortified by the aggressively tasteful playing of drummer John Lacques, a master of jazz and country alike; and the bass wizardry of Jeff Novack, equally adept on both electric and upright.

Jon Griffin, who produced the record, takes the band’s sound to new musical heights by creating a wonderfully live acoustic environment that captures every nuance. These six tracks, which feature the added warmth of a horn section and vintage synthesizer, are masterfully mixed into a carefully wrought finished product.
