"...sensuous and engaging, the recording conveys the feeling of actual minds and bodies producing these sounds in real time." CADENCE. After years of traveling, bassist Jeff Johnson made Seattle home in the late '80s where he settled quickly into a musically rich existence. Besides becoming a piece of both Hal Galper and Jessica Williams' active trios, Johnson was creating another body of work with saxophonist John Gross and drummer Billy Mintz who he'd met while living in San Diego. Pianist Art Resnick went back to his earliest playing days in Minneapolis and had recently moved to Portland. Wrapping up a west coast tour with the quartet, Jeff booked a studio for a few hours to capture where the muse had been taking them. Tape in hand, they agreed they had found some magic, and then all went their separate ways. They rekindled the moments again and again in different combinations over the years, while "My Heart" remained on the shelf. Always wanting to release the album to honor the care John, Billy and Art gave to his music, here 32 years later that moment has come. "...a trailblazing approach to composition and melodic improvisation that, like his signature playing on bass, stands out as original and fearless." ALL ABOUT JAZZ
