The Fat Babies are back for their fourth effort for Delmark records, and this time the dance tunes are lathered with the butter of sophisticated, atmospheric textural arrangements. While the band continues to develop and make great music, this recording captures the band at what some listeners consider its apogee, as an 8-piece with Jonathan Doyle (Mighty Blue Kings, Four Charms, Tuba Skinny) jumpin' around the skillet. This was the form of the band between 2016-2018, when they held court in Uptown on the northside every Tuesday and in Pilsen on the southside every Sunday. This was a good year for lovers of early jazz, for the band was always cookin’, the dance floor was always full, and every set seemed to build incessantly towards the ebullient chorus at the end of the show when everyone screamed as the horns stood up to take it all back home.
