Featuring sizzling performances from guitar virtuoso Mitch Talevi and keyboard extraordinair Bill Keis, founding member of Spyro Gyra, drummer Tom Walsh, bassists: Ric Fierabracci (Chick Corea), Adam Cohen (Ray Charles), Steve Billman (Grammy Award)
Get ready for a unique listening experience - jazz which is both edgy and powerful, yet lyrical. Talevi/Keis compositions take you on a musical journey from hot latin jazz to Caribbean, reggae, rock fusion, straight-ahead, which is exhilarating, moving and extremely satisfying as well as accessible - often people that don't usually like Jazz love this CD. Mostly instrumental, but several with vocals as well.
Bill and Mitch are LA based session players who started composing and performing together in 1979. This CD is the culmination of over three decades of music making!
