Album Notes
"Heller injects this music with joy and intelligence, making the listening experience a bit like witnessing genius by lightening strike, fast and furious and allowing for revelation in future listening." (All About Jazz).

Skip Heller's first CD of original music in three -- count 'em, three -- years find him in the company of organ genius Joe Bagg and upstart drummer Ryan Doyle.

This is Pan-American Jazz: Be-bop meets spaghetti western twang, film noir, rhythm'n'blues, and more with traditional roots organ combo music. Heller's new compositions are something truly special, too, giving the soloists maximum space to stretch out while challenging them.

An all-new Skip Heller album is always cause for music freaks to celebrate, but the one-two punch of BEAR FLAG and the live-in-Philly OUT OF TIME are a party unto themselves.

Fans of organ jazz have been discovering Skip Heller for the lasy few years and he's become a cult hero via blistering live shows and critical kudos. BEAR FLAG is a perfect introduction to this singular talent.
