ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded in NYC after a seven gig run (SMoke as part of Dave Douglas' FONT festival, Smalls and dizzy's Club Coca Cola). This is a follow up to the groups hugely successful 2013 CD 'When Night Falls' with the great Jeb Patton replacing Albert Sanz at the piano bench and the equally great Mike Karn replacing Dave Whitford on bass duties. The program is a tight knit, hard hitting one of mainly original tunes in the Hard bop idiom. Steve Fishwick contributes two originals: Jymie, a fast latin/swing opus in dedication to the great bassist Jymie Merrit and Warne's World, a moody medium swinger inspired by the lines of Warne Marsh. His modernistic arrangement of How Deep Is The Ocean is also in the program. Osian Roberts has three originals- Enid, dedicated to Osian's daughter, a beautiful waltz reminiscent of some of Wayne Shorter's earlier works. Lulllaby For Eira, a great Hard Bop ballad written for Osian's other daughter. Finally Dial "J" For Jackie is Osian's tribute to Jackie McLean. Frank Basile's offerings are his humorous arrangement of the old standard My Blue Heaven and his original Morse Code. Great performances by all involved, this is a burning record!
