Dan Dowling is a jazz guitarist living in Albuquerque, NM. For this recording he is joined by Pat Rhoads/grand piano, John Griffin/upright bass, and Andy Poling/drums. These musicians have been performing together over a span of many years and it shows in the ease and spontaneity of their ensemble interplay. Six of the tunes are originals penned by Dan and the remaining three are standards which Dan arranged for this quartet.
