Review: The always engaging combo that knows how to kick it out like a big band. Recorded live at a top Silicon Valley jazz club, all the right snap, crackle and pop is in the air as they mix their originals with war horses. A real jazzbo dream date, the special sauce is flying as these cool school swingers heat up the night.
