From the liner notes… Jim Anderson’s old-school direct-to-two-track recording captures the living essence of what jazz is about. The music swings unabashedly. The band clearly loves to improvise, and we take chances creating our youthfully skilled reverie. In addition, a certain unmistakable, Midwestern honky-tonk aesthetic imbues each note with a learned-by-ear expression, invoking the unbridled dance hall playing of my youth. Then as now, Drew Gress and Phil Haynes are among the most symbiotic, versatile and interactive rhythm teams in contemporary music. It’s worth the price of admission just to hear them explore and weave. You can’t miss the dialogue we have over these ten bluesy arrangements. Not surprisingly, a certain regional, straightforward, Midwestern honesty emerges that is just as satisfying as I know it to be uncommon.
