"A strong debut from journeyman jazzer Steve Hall and his cohort of performers. Given the band's relative obscurity, the release is surprisingly well put together, with a nice mix of standards and original compositions, and tones ranging from
relaxed to uptempo." All Music Guide
Steve Hall is a Hammond organ player located in the Portland, OR area. A Berklee grad, he has worked for years in the night club, restaurant, and hotel scene on the West Coast.
