Album Notes
Refreshing is the word that describes this CD. From the first notes of "It's You Or No One" to the final notes of "Porky", this is a real Jazz CD. In an era when Jazz has become the most abused four letter word in the English language this recording is refreshing. For quite a few years, the Jazz label has been claimed by or hung on a large group of musical performers and singers who wouldn't know a flatted 5th from a moose! Not so here. Ron Diehl, Wade Beach, Tom Baldwin and Bob Wyatt are the real deal. Isn't it interesting and encouraging that each section of the country has its own group of superb jazz musicians who are every bit as talented and accomplished as those who are considered the creme de la creme of Americas only indigenous art form. This CD proves the point. Here is a talented and swinging jazz quartet with marvelous ensemble work, imaginative solos, and outstanding treatments of a great selection of tunes. Ron Diehl's work on all the reeds is creative and bespeaks a mastery of his instruments and an ability to swing- and, yes Virginia there is only one saxophonists on the recording. If you love real jazz here is your opportunity to be refreshed.

This guy is the real diehl!
From his choice of tunes to the choice of saxes on which to play them, Ron Diehl is a master musician who never takes a wrong step. His improvisations are melodic and soaring. The group is tight with essential contributions from each member. This is 66 minutes of delightful music that is worth hearing over and over. I was going to write that Ron is one of the greatest sax players you have never heard of, but that doesn't do him justice. He is one of the greatest sax players, period.
