Canadian-born, NYC-based clarinetist, saxophonist, and vocalist Evan Arntzen's debut release! Backing him up is the France's grooviest rhythm section: La Section Rythmique www.lasectionrythmique.com

CD includes liner notes by multiple Grammy award-winning jazz writer, Dan Morgenstern!

"What particularly delights me about the repertory offered here is the many bases it touches, from Jelly Roll Morton and Chris Smith (who penned "Ballin' the Jack") to Richard Rodgers and Walter Donaldson, not to mention Billy Strayhorn and Lester Young. It is one of the greatest pleasures of my long life, much of it spent in the company of jazz, that the music finally seems to have arrived at a point in its rich history when more and more young musicians are able to hear and absorb all of it instead of limiting themselves to the latest, the oldest, or the in between. Clearly, Evan is one of these. He has a distinctive style on both his chosen instruments, on which he offers appealing sounds, fluent command, and that often elusive thing called swing."
