Review

A core trio rounds up a boat load of pals to masquerade as a jazz big band and turns a bunch of AOR rock staples on their heads bringing it back as jazz that Shorty Rogers might have turned out in his day. A crew that loves to throw curve balls fast and furiously (calling their debut Second Season for example), this set asks you to throw linearity to the wind and follow the muse. Fun stuff that opens the ears in a new way, aging boomers looking for a segue from rock to jazz as they mature in their tastes might find this the portal they ve been looking for. --midwestrecord.com

Led Zep as the Music of Your Life? Yeah, it's time. The anonymous liner notes say, "...those who grew up post-Beatles will never be immune from the influence of rock music." So we re eight bars into the first track, and I m locked in. I m thinking - okay, this is Won t Get Fooled Again, and it sounds so familiar, that I know exactly where it s going to go, "Bomp-bom..."

Oh. Wait. We re off in a new direction. The Lydia McAdams vocal begins, and yes - it all sounds so familiar, yet so different - syncopated and Latin and swingy - and yet.

And yet - all the touchstones are there. You know this music. Hell, I lived this music. This is my music.

"Killer Queen" with a big band? Yeah, you ve got to hear it. I played Led Zep s "The Rain Song" back to back with this version. Seamless. It simply sounds like the song went in a different direction...one that s a little more modern.

Lydia McAdams is the vocalist of this talented pack, and I don t know where she s been - but I get the impression she s going somewhere important. She handles this material with confidence - nailing each of the vocals, whether the high energy "Killer Queen" or one of my favorites, Sting s cool groove, "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da."

Highest recommendation for this disc - I dare you to go listen, and tell me you're not hooked. Even the instrumental "Eleanor Rigby" has me hooked.

Big band jazz for aging baby boomers? Hell no. For everybody. --girlsingers.org

It's about time someone bent this steal into new playground material. --Best Indie Music Out There
