CD Review: It is with pleasure that i review this album. First of all because it is good music, secondly because this album supports music education for under-privileged children. Portions of the proceeds from every CD sale will go to this worthy cause.

Jeff Riley from Ohio is the soul of this project, he is also a gifted saxophonist. About ten years ago he started this idea  that he is also planning to expand in the future. This group is like an adventure that never cease to surprise. It began in Cincinnati and later grew coast to coast. The old songs don't change but the way they are played does because every time it is like an old family reunion and everybody involved contributes with his own style. On the other hand new songs keep coming in.

This album is a collection of what happens during these musical meetings. It is really enjoyable and colorful music played with passion and professionalism. It is jazz with a soul and a tick of swing. I would like to recommend this CD to everyone who loves exciting jazz music.
