Jody Byrd Honestly anything with Jonathan Stout on it, is sure to be a treat, and this is no exception. A fantastic effort all around! I will be checking out all of Enric Peidro's albums after hearing this! A dancer's dream to be sure!

Arnas Razgūnas ​Immerse yourself into a mesmerizing dream of Enric Peidro’s jazz where swing tells a never-ending story of their blues, which has no beginning, but is here as long as there is a heartbeat. It’s difficult to call it a new album - Enric Peidro and his band have mastered the feeling of continuity as if they never stopped playing but somebody had to cut a piece of their eternal swing and release it as an album or another album or a new album. It's got to be sweetness, man, you dig? Favorite track: Sweet As Bear Meat.

about

In today's world of barnstorming Big Band dance groups and conservatory modern jazz ensembles, it can be easy to forget the laid-back side of Swing. The breathy, reedy, after-hours lilting of sax greats like Prez, Hodges, and Webster. The intimate musical conversations of virtuosos chilling like close friends, like family. The rhythm section sitting so far in the pocket you either want to get up and dance, or just lean back, sip a cocktail, and float in it.      
 
Enric Peidro and Jonathan Stout have clearly not forgotten.
 
Peidro, as usual, plays the "plumbing" like butter, and Stout, unsurprisingly, turns his guitar into the perfect companion. They lilt, they swing, they chill like family. This album is 14 beautiful, living, small-group swing songs, with all the glory of modern fidelity, and the passion of new voices honoring their pioneers. It's not just music for dancing --- it's music for dancing effortlessly.
