Santa Fe & The Fat City Horns is the culmination of the dreams of all the individual musicians in the band. We all dreamed about what the "ideal" gig would be, and it went something like this:
"To play music that moved, challenged and inspired us, without the usual external restrictions, influences or boundaries that come with every other gig... To make that music with people we love and respect, both personally and musically... and to be able to share it with others.
That is what Santa Fe & The Fat City horns is about. The band is a throw back to all the bands that influenced us growing up, as well as a tribute to our musical heroes and friends, mixed with our own music and arrangements. Old School and raw, but polished with pride and discipline.
The music comes from the depths of our emotions and feelings,... honest heartfelt. It also completely "Live" so it is complete with mistakes and all those other things that happen in a real live situation.
I hope you enjoy this CD as much as we enjoyed making it.
