Tight big band brights. File next to Bonjougate - the Lor moves in mysterious ways. #fresh #vital

About the Album

Hellgate is a shuffle that ranges from soft and controlled to loud and raucous. Along with great solos from Dave Smith and Jon Irabagon it has a really nice “arranger’s chorus” from the composer.
