Album Notes
The name of the band is East West Standard Time. The musicians are: Dave Santoro on bass, Takeshi Ohbayashi on piano, Hamir Atwal on drums, and Jim Odgren on alto saxophone.

For us, this is the rediscovery of music from a rich period of jazz, the '50's and 60's. The composers and the players of the time were breaking ground, pushing the development of the music forward at a blistering pace. A vital, essential music. At the heart of "Day Dreaming" is the tradition of four musicians playing a selection of these jazz songs together in solid, swinging jazz time. We recorded this music in one day - most are first takes. We also, with the help of very dear friends, went the extra mile to create a recording of the highest audio standards.

It was an amazing journey - from rehearsal and choosing the songs, to recording, mixing, mastering, artwork and manufacturing. This is a project where everybody involved has contributed with an absolutely professional and artistic approach.

Mike Abraham, terrific alto player, friend and master of audio recording concepts.
Peter Kontrimas for recording us so accurately, and for making the ideal environment for recording our music.
Alex Rodriguez for mixing so beautifully and intricately.
Jonathan Wyner for mastering the music and bring it to such high level of artistic refinement.
Danielle Mailer, amazing artist, generously donating such a tremendous work for our cd.
Colin and Peter MacEachern for assembling all of this art into such a terrific final product.
Norihide Shiota, wonderful bassist and producer, for listening and writing such eloquent liner notes.
The folks at Oasis Manufacturing for making the single speed glass master, and then manufacturing the cd's and artwork at such high specs.
The folks at CD Baby. A long relationship for me, going all the way back to meeting the founder, Derek Sivers in 2005. [Derek and his and my dear friend & composer, Kimo Williams, journeyed to Vietnam together in 2008, to play Kimo's music on a mission of healing though music.]
Takeshi Obayashi, an extraordinary talent on piano and trumpet, whom I first met during clinics in Hokkaido, in 2006.
Hamir Atwal, an amazing musician and drummer.
Dave Santoro, my guide to this music, my mentor, a great musician, bassist and friend.

I think I speak for everyone when I say "we had so much fun doing this!' I hope our deep respect for the music, along with our spirit of adventure, comes across on our cd.

When the music is swinging this hard, you just can't beat the feeling!

Jim Odgren, alto saxophonist
