about

A couple days after New Years arrived, we went into the studio and cut this album. In less than a week it was recorded, mixed, mastered, designed, and sent off for pressing. The dog barking at our heels to get it done was the International Blues Challenge in Memphis at which we had been chosen to represent our hometown city of Philadelphia. Given this rare honor, we didn't want to show up empty handed to a competition drawing the finest blues bands from around the globe. So we brewed vats of coffee, burned candles at both ends, and taped our eyes open to get the album done in time. After many chewed fingernails, the fruits of our labor arrived, one day before our trip departure. Despite the rushed production, we still captured the energy which propels our music forward, and with it the feet of dancers who are often in our audience--and hopefully in all of us! "Jazz will endure just as long as people hear it through their feet instead of their brains," said John Philip Sousa. Whatever parts of your body listen to music, we hope our fresh take on old traditions will to stir them to life.
