With a name like "Nark", Vaughn must have gotten teased a lot in school – but he probably more than made up for that by coming back with a strong little indie jazz set like this! Vaughn plays trumpet, and the rest of the lineup includes sax/
flute, bass, drums, and piano – the last of which is sometime
s electric, bringing a sweeter, warmer sound to some of the best cuts. The album's mostly straight – with little funk or groove elements – but it's a well-played batch of work from some players we know little about
. Titles include the originals "Alone" and "Cutting Through" – plus "Counting Down", "Blues In The Guts", "Somewhere In The Sun", and "Runaway".
