ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are a group of 7 outstanding musicians dedicated to our craft. More specifically, we have a vocalist, trumpet, tenor sax, baritone sax, piano, bass, and drums. Almost everyone in the band has a Bachelors in Music and each musician has taken the time study with some of the best living musicians to date. In fact, you may already know of Kosi Gyebi Sorensen our vocalist, and Yayoi Ikawa our pianist. Both of these fine young women have already generated a lot of press in news papers and blogs.

The style of music we play is an original genre of jazz we call Groove. Groove can be considered the middle ground between the jazz musician and the common person. This was a difficult balancing act. Jazz musicians tend to want to challenge themselves into an art form that the everyday listener can't understand and usually doesn't like. Versus, if we focused solely on appeasing the common listener, we loose our originality and identities in cheese the world really doesn't need any more of. That said, you might be wondering how is it possible to find the middle ground? To fully answer that question it would take a doctoral thesis, just know we've spent 5 years in consumer research designing such an answer. A second question you might ask is why would we go through so much trouble? The short answer is that we want to be the band that brings back jazz. Lastly, while we're on the subject, the name was motivated by a joke Arturo O'farrill likes to tell us at school "What's more important than groove?"
