This band is the working trio of Bill Mays plus Berlin-based tenor saxist Peter Weniger. They play a mix of originals and a couple of standards. They are all most excited about this project. Bill says: "My goal is to communicate. I want to write and play music that will move the audience, that comes both from the heart and the head, that shares something of my life's experience." This CD contains great swinging mainstream jazz shaped by four talented writers and players.
"I don't know when I've heard music more eloquent as a language of wit, wisdom and passionate beauty."
Hugh Fraser, The Hamilton Spectator
