Notes

Recorded at the Velvet Lounge on July 14, 2005, The Messenger's melody harmonic-rhythm-tonic DNA matrix is encoded with all that came before and all that's happening now with Chicago jazz. This is music that rocks a funky-tight nappy-headed swing shift like it ain't no big thing. This is music that huffs, puffs and laffs like Jr. Wells a half-pint up. This is music that rolls like church, dances like Africa and strong-arms beats 'n' bops like Art Blakey when he had Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan and Curtis Fuller in the Jazz Messengers. This is music that could only be conceived-written-performed by Ernest Dawkins' New Horizons Ensemble.
