New York Electric Piano
King Mystery
Buffalo Puppy

On two previous trio outings, pianist-composer Pat Daugherty played the Fender Rhodes exclusively. This time out he expands the core group of bassist Tim Givens and drummer Aaron Comess to include saxophonist/flutist Till Behler, vocalist Deanna Kirk and synth inventor-player Leon Gruenbaum while also incorporating the acoustic piano on several tracks (a 12/8 “The Wheel,” the Monkish “Legend of Baj” and the burning “Road to Newport”). Daugherty’s expressive Fender Rhodes playing is at the heart of the lyrical “Hymn Including” and the dynamic “I Shot the Deputy.”
