(And if it's not, then nonetheless it's good to know you also enjoy music beyond that specific genre.)
So are you in a position to get HRO to cut a CD sometime? I really dug them at HJDF and next time I go to NYC I'm going to go out of my way to catch them at Luci's.
*Maybe not official info*
HRO are cutting a CD as we are sitting around right now. Release scheduled before or during the summer if my info is correct. How final this is I don't know...
I'll guess they'll release info on their website when they know dates and stuff.

Her tenor sax player has started a new smaller band called Porkpie, they played at the Seattle exchange last year and were excellent.
Both bands are playing at this year's exchange :)

No doubt. I've seen him get excited about orange juice.

I talked to Shorty Dave this weekend and I got some band member out of him. We are talking about Jazz Legends here. I'll be there. I trust Shorty Dave.

So...when do we get to know who's in this band? :)
