"After The Rain"
I wanted to write this review/overview of our first nationally released single because I thought it would mean more coming from us and help explain what you are hearing. Jazz is a broad term. It is the broadness that we embrace and apply to our material.
Too often artists will produced material with targeted markets in sight while perhaps not truly feeling that niche. We chose to simply play what we feel drawing from different regional influences, styles and approaches. With origins like Philly, New York, Ohio and North Carolina there is a wide influence of input towards our music. Some of us were raised on big bands while others found Soul to be their calling. What ever happens in the studio and at live performances is real and true.
I throw the term "Contemporary" around in lieu of the more known sheik "Smooth Jazz" because of our free and open approach to the music. It's what we feel, what we think, and who we are now.
