About the Album

Personnel: Linda Dachtyl-Hammond Organ; Robert Kraut-Guitar; Jim Rupp-Drums. Composer: Linda Dauwalder-Dachtyl (ASCAP)

From the liner notes: "Les Chats Bleus is an up-tempo piece that brought Lou Bennett to my mind. It has a wonderful bridge that rolled around in my mind long after I first heard it. This one gives us perspective on LDs approach to a variety of music styles and demonstrates her control and awareness of where the music has gone and where it is going. Its the wholeness of her music that is both refreshing and impressive." --Pete Fallico

Recorded at Columbus Sound Studios. Produced by Tony Monaco. Engineered by Tony Monaco and Bill Heingartner. Dedicated to my two Russian Blue cats, Max and Misha.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
