Album Notes
This recording is a literal record of Leland's artistic itinerary and indicative of the grassroots jazz movement that has been ignored by major labels. The majors are in business to sell widgets and with jazz comprising less than 3% of the music marketplace, little attention is paid to what is ironically our most demanding and genuine art form.
The good news is that state-of-the-art recording technology is available to all jazz artists now, so a talented player can establish a niche. And it's easier than it's ever been.
Today a small focused, marketplace can flourish for both jazz musicians and jazz fans alike. So, take advantage of the good fortune and listen to three fine artists create jazz in the abstract. Mike Leland has called on two ima-ginative players, Ed Garcia, JR. and John Dellavedova on the bass and drums respectively, to realize a swinging, solid and synergistic rhythm section. And listen for Mike's son, Matt, a marvelous trombonist as he complements the group on "Ante Up" and "Open and Shut". Simply put, this is great stuff. Listen and enjoy. Jim Carlton
