Totally controlled awesome. Big personalities, big tune.

About the Album

Seattle-based vibraphonist Tom Collier and bassist Dan Dean have been playing music together since they were teens back in the '60s. Here, they gather with long-time friends, pianist Don Grusin, saxophonist Ernie Watts, and drummer Alex Acuna, to revisit the energy & spirit of their 1980 LP, "Whistling Midgets." With tight, fleet lines and rollicking grooves, the duo's time-earned telepathic musical connection makes "Sleek Buick" a festive treat. Also featured are drummer Ted Poor, trumpeter Allen Vizzutti, and saxophonist Gary Herbig.
