With a set list of ten swingin’ originals from the pen of the leader, Away With Words boasts a smokin’ quintet blowin’ straight-ahead jazz with a modern twist. Accompanying the leader is a group of top tier musicians who are no strangers to the Louisville music scene.
Playing the Fender Rhodes on the album is Todd Hildreth, best know as the leader of Squeeze-Bot and for his work with The Java Men. On drums and cymbals is Zack Kennedy, who can be found playing all over Louisville with bands like Cabin, Dr. Vitamin, D’Arkestra, and Egret. Holding down the bass chair is Australian native Luke McIntosh of Appalatin fame. And last but not least is the band’s special guest on tenor saxophone, Dave Kana from the Pittsburgh area.
