Album Notes
The Long Beach Jazz Quartet is Tony Bray on Tenor and Soprano Saxophones as well as Rhodes. Paul Luis on Guitar. Nathan Light on Acoustic Upright Bass. John Bellino on Drums. We also had our friend Girish sit in on Tablas for a couple of cuts.
The whole concept for the group as well as the concept for this CD was to write and play material that felt like it could have been done during a time when jazz was cool but without restraint. The late fifties or early sixties.

Bill Milosz

Interesting rthymic approach; well recorded
An interesting CD of modern jazz which gives improvisation room to stretch it's legs, but which doesn't abandon tradition or structure. By turns tuneful and emotionally expressive, this is mature music from an ensemble that deserves to be better known. Sonics are clean without being too clinically "studio."
