Album Notes
West Coast Jazz flows again from Octobop with the release of its latest recording, After Dark. Following on the successes of its previous two recordings, the octet from Silicon Valley delivers their brand of cool in a release that includes 12 tracks from the works of Gerry Mulligan, Shorty Rogers, Steve Swallow, Al Belletto, Henri Mancini, Cy Coleman, Marty Paich, and Bill Holman.

Continuing and updating the West Coast Jazz sound is the force behind Octobop. Led by saxophonist/arranger Geoff Roach, the music is California cool all the way. With the lineup of four horns, vibes, guitar, bass, and drums, the ensemble delivers an open, modern sound that captures and holds the listener's attention. The music is not only familiar enough to be accessible, but also is challenging enough to deliver some surprises.

After Dark is the third release by Octobop. Night Lights hit the streets in the fall of 2002 and
Too Close For Comfort made its debut in the fall of 1999. Octobop performs at festivals, clubs, and private events throughout California and the Western United States.

I haven't enjoyed a CD this much since the Sinister Dexter CD, Dexterity. What great tunes. What a great ensemble. I knew about the horns, somehow didn't know about the vibraphone. I'm a sucker for a vibraphone. This CD will cheer you up.
