About the album

Whether performing with the heaviest jazz luminaries or with his own bands, pianist Marc Seales' deeply lyrical and blues-based approach to modern jazz has defined the sound of Seattle's dynamic jazz scene for several decades. For his fourth recording, Seales brings together his longtime compatriots--guitarist Fred Hamilton, drummer Gary Hobbs, and bassists, Jeff Johnson and Dave Captein--for a set of original blues compositions and reworked jazz standards such as "Giant Steps" and "ESP." Included also is a new version of Seales' "Highway Blues." Originally recorded by his group New Stories with Ernie Watts, it's known to many for its use as a music file in Windows XP, and has been one of the most listened to jazz performances in the digital world.
