Album Review

Springing from a series of performances in Eugene, Oregon's art gallery walks, Now...Here...This is a studio recording attempting to mimic the dynamic of the live performances, minus the surrounding noise. The session was as a result unrehearsed and had no post-production. It's a very clean, very spontaneous sound. Mike Denny has a warm tone on the guitar throughout, which meshes well with Rick Mandyck's sax work (recorded not long before he switched over to guitar himself). Jeff Johnson and John Bishop do some very fine work on bass and drum respectively throughout. While really capturing the Oregon sound, this album is one of the early markers of the reemergence of the Northwest on the jazz scene, with notables from the Portland scene and the Seattle scene combining for a fine piece of work. While other albums on the Origin label may be more exciting, this one is a relaxed, soft affair made for lazy evenings.
