Album Notes
Funky, Edgy, Jammy, Electric Jazz that you won’t soon forget; mixes acid jazz, jam band casual approach, the sass of Funk and a searing electric production that delivers it all with tasteful precision.

It’s rare these days to record even one song in a day let alone an entire CD, but true to the old school tradition, the session was recorded live in the studio. The band met in the woods in upstate New York at Hal Winer’s Bi-Coastal Music Studio and recorded 12 cuts without a rehearsal. If there appears to be a psychic connection between the musicians it is probably because they have been playing together in various combinations for over thirty years.

The group features Ted Daniel, Curtis Fowlkes and Charles Compo providing plenty of old fashion blowing and stretching, accompanied by the hard-hitting drum and percussion team of Jon Bates and Mustafa Ahmed, along with the keyboard magic of Anthony Stewart and Matthew Friedman, and the bass work of Mark Peterson.

The CD is great for any lover of jazz. The music is just for the sake of the music without any snobbish pretense.

Ted Daniel, Trumpet, began his professional career playing with legendary guitarist, Sonny Sharrock, and was featured on his first album “Black Woman”. His second recording was with Brute Force, a band he co-led with his brother, Richard Daniel, the recording, entitled “Brute Force”, was produced by Herbie Mann on the Embryo label. Since then, Daniel has participated on over thirty published recordings with such great artists as Archie Shepp, Dewey Redman, Andrew Cyrille, Sam Rivers, Billy Bang and Henry Threadgil. Mr. Daniel has held workshops at Amherst College, Bennington College, Williams College and the University of Hosei in Tokyo, Japan. He has also conducted seminars and workshops from New York to Madrid. Daniel has produced three albums under his own name, including “The Ted Daniel Sextet” (Ujamaa Records), “Tapestry” (Sun Records), and “In The Beginning” (Altura Records). The latter features a twelve piece ensemble that includes Oliver Lake, Arthur Blythe, Charles Tyler and David Murray. Eventually, this ensemble evolved into a larger group known as “Energy”. Daniel has been the recipient of a NEA compositional grant and awarded “Talent Deserving Wider Recognition” from Downbeat Magazine.

Curtis Fowlkes, Trombone, has performed on dozens of recordings, maintaining a diverse career that spans a broad range of jazz and rock music. In addition to co-founding The Jazz Passengers, he has been a member of The Lounge Lizards, Bill Frisell's quartet, and The Kansas City All-Stars, which produced two CDs, including the award winning soundtrack for Robert Altman's film, Kansas City, and an international tour. Fowlkes also toured with Charlie Haden's reunited Liberation Orchestra and with The Ellington Alumni Orchestra led by Louie Bellson. Other collaborators include downtown New Yorkers John Zorn and Marc Ribot; comedian Harry Shearer; and rock artists Sheryl Crow, Debbie Harry, Elvis Costello, Jeb Loy Nichols, and Cibo Matto. Fowlkes' debut as a leader came in 1999 with the release of “Catfish Corner - Reflect" (Knitting Factory Records).

Charles Compo, Tenor Sax, Flute, and Guitar, has performed over the years with a diverse list of cutting edge innovators and jazz warriors, including Sahib Shehab, Sonny Sharrock, Howard Johnson, Rashid Bakr, William Hooker, Roy Campbell Jr., Eddie Henderson, John Hicks, Wilber Morris, Kilpig, Demo Moe, Julie Cruise and many others. Compo has recorded solo albums for Smithsonian Folkways (Seven Abstractions For Flute), Lakeside Records (Psycho Jammy), and Star Records (Seventh Moon). He has been featured on dozens of recordings, including three live performances at the Knitting Factory: “Radiation” (Homestead Records), “Great Sunset”, and “The Distance Between Us” (Knitting Factory Records). His eclectic career has encompassed everything from touring with pop diva Christina Aguilera to over 300 performances Off Broadway in “Return To The Forbidden Planet”. His creative credentials include collaborations with filmmaker/musicologist Harry Smith on “Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, film #21”, and compositions and performances with an extensive list of dance companies, including Twyla Tharp and Jose Limon. He has been featured on many soundtracks, as well as on stage at such venues as the Hennessey Jazz Festival, The Bell Atlantic Jazz Festival, and The Vision Festival.
