This was recorded January 27, 1990. I fronted a quintet on Friday and Saturday nights from 1984 to 1995. It is representative of band's vision of straight ahead Hard Bop jazz. Many musicians, some now well known, played at Bertha's over the years. A number that quallity for that meaningless and misused but sometimes appropirate journalistic jargon -- LEGENDARY ICONS took the stand.

Tony and Laura Norris, the owners, and accomplished musicians as well, put up with a lot of antics from us. It was the longest running steady gig I have had the good fortune to enjoy. I wanted to document the music as well as the attentive (someimtes boisterous) audience we encountered year after year.
