Exciting and Explosive debut CD of a new quartet of young veteran jazz musicians - Rick Roe (Piano), Mark Byerly (Trumpet), Paul Keller (Bass), and Bill Higgins (Drums), from the Detroit Jazz Scene! Four experienced, virtuostic, highly creative and sympathetic musicians create a fresh new sound of the classic jazz combo like that of the Miles Davis quintet of the 1960's. Originals and Jazz Classics with the awesome sound and interpretation of this great band recorded in 2001.

"There is an enthusiam generated by their convincing execution, whether they are playing Monk, Shorter, or Rodgers/Hart."
"It results in a very cohesive band that has taken a page out of the rich history of Jazz and expounded on it with fresh concepts" -Frank Rubolino Cadence May 2003
