For their second recording, the Electric Squeezebox Orchestra went into the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA for a marathon two-day session, capturing the band's eclectic spirit through 9 original compositions along with an arrangement of McCoy Tyner's "Señor Carlos." Led by trumpeter Erik Jekabson, the band has held down Sunday nights for three years at Doc's Lab in SF's vibrant North Beach neighborhood. Building a formidable book of originals and creative arrangements, a dynamic group aesthetic, and a loyal fan-base ready for anything, the ESO takes chances and explores options while never veering from their pursuit of heart, soul and groove. •"Plenty of vibrancy to the huge sound generated by the band, but it's the way the music flows so effortlessly that makes this a winning album." - Bird is the Worm •"4 1/2 impressively democratic group...Humor and camaraderie characterize the thoroughly enjoyable debut from this communal big band." - Downbeat
