Conversations involve an exchange - a giving and a receiving. The best conversations occur when the partners are really listening to each other. Jazz is conversation. Here we have five musicians one May day in Toronto, having conversations with each other. This recording was done with no rehearsal and only a few charts. What you're hearing is mostly the first or second takes. This is a rarity to hear "live" undoctored music these days. And what a treat it is to hear bassist John Lamb (former bassist for Duke Ellington) in conversation with his Canadian friends north of the border.

The "North of the border" musicians all believe that jazz should be fun and you can hear them enjoying themselves with these wonderful conversations. Their music together builds a wonderful bridge across the border.
