11 Guys Quartet - Small Blues And Grooves (CD)

Ships In 7-9 Business Days
Minimalist Blues instrumentals. Billy, Paul, Chuck and Rosy got together in the early 1980s as the 11th Hour Band ' played some great rockin' blues, hit the Boston area clubs and had some wild times. They released 'Hot Time In The City Tonight' in 1985, the first record on the fledgling Tone-Cool Records imprint, and went on to play together off and on for the next few decades. They all stayed busy with other pursuits, musical and otherwise, but their unique musical chemistry and friendship kept bringing the '11 Guys' back to their original quartet. Around 2008 they decided to go into the studio to record some original instrumentals - straight-ahead, unadorned live takes, mood pieces and variations - nothing screaming, all self-contained and, well' small. After considering the possibilities for another decade or so, they decided it was time to release this music to the world as '11 Guys Quartet  Small Blues and Grooves.' Enjoy!
