"If ever there was a jazz ensemble with an appropriately descriptive name, this is it!
These guys do love to swing...they play with the kind of unadulterated and unabashed gusto you tend
to hear only in Dixieland bands or Traditional jazz groups.. Unlike many traditional Jazz bands,
this is neither a preservationist nor a recreationist group... True, the two horn players can evoke
some of their famous predecessors (Ben Webster and Charlie Shavers)...but that's more of a case of
their chosen musical environment than emulation...So if you enjoy swing with a zing, you'll want to get
'hep' to this band."

A word about the stereophonic recordings from B-Flat Music Production. Our recordings are produced using a pair of Crown PCM Pressure Zone Boundary Mics, which enable all the musicians to sound as if they are all equally close to the mic. The resulting signal is fed into a stereo Tascam mixer. Our first processor was an outboard two channel unit, recording direct to digital audio on a Beta Video Machine. When the Akai Dr4d Hard Drive recorder became availabe we switched to this newer format. As a matter of principle, we allowed no further tampering with the signal, except for a "room size" digital environment: No compression, limiting, or dolby noise reduction.
