…upbeat and interesting…it really swings, and Summit demonstrates, once again, its ability to put out the finest examples of jazz subgenres on disc. — Fred Barrett, Beyond Coltrane
The Scene: A warm, moist night in the city known as the birthplace of jazz . . . The Old Point Bar, near the levee right across the river from downtown New Orleans. The excitement of the performance is captured, even the improvisational surprises, not to mention the simply amazing solos!
The quality of the music being made, combined with the energy created by the audience’s response truly immerses the listener in the ‘Nawlins experience to the point of smelling the smoke, tasting the bourbon, and feeling the heat.
