Jazz with Appalachian overtones... earthy bass... lyrical percussion... picturesque piano... imaginative dobro
Four gifted musicians came together to raise money for the Odyssey Community School in Asheville, NC. They had played together for many years in various combinations, but this one produced a unique and gorgeous mood of jazz.
These four fathers found the time, essentially unrehearsed, to record on a spring weekend in April 2011. The magical sessions took place at Sound Temple Studios with engineer Michael Hynes and the help of owner Robert George.
There was a chemistry between the musical friends, and within the sonic qualities of the instruments involved. The sessions proved to be a breath of fresh air for all involved, and the music was imaginative, live, and without the use of a click track.
