A deep trip through the legendary Blue Note catalog – one that's headed up by keyboardist Mark De Clive
, who adds in plenty of his own music to the album too! Unlike other projects of this nature, which maybe push the original songs a bit more strongly, Mark
really works his own magic with gems that are mostly from the 70s electric Blue Note years – sounds from the generation of Larry Mizell, Jack McDuff, Gene Harris, Gary Bartz, Donald Byrd, and other electrified stars – who get company from Mark
's own keyboards alongside his live mixing of the music – which is also augmented by the bass of Pino Palladino, tenor sax of Nomad Pendergrass, and vocals from Bambu, Illa J, John Robinson, and Nia Andrews!
