About the Album

For his second recording as a leader, Chicago guitarist/composer John McLean and his group explore a broad aural palette, adding voice and violin to his working quintet, as they explore a set of originals, pop standards such as the Beatles' Blackbird, and old standards, including a raucous, inventive take on Air Mail Special. Featuring vocalist Grazyna Auguscik and violinist Zach Brock. "...smokes with an authenticity that centers on exciting guitar leadership." -All About Jazz.
