ALL FOUR EP's ON ONE CD!

Country music and jazz are often cast as antithetical styles, but the truth is far more complicated. For Hunter and Amendola, a great song is simply a great song, and they find plenty of grist for improvisation in Hank Williams' classics like "Cold Cold Heart," and "Ramblin' Man." They find fertile ground even further afield from typical jazz fare in the music of new wave rockers The Cars, digging into hits like "Candy-O," and "Let's Go."

"The idea is to do these four and see how people respond," Hunter says. "We started thinking why do we keep making 10-song CDs. I don't necessarily want to do 10 Hank Williams songs, but five can work well. As long as the song is good we can put it through the mill, like what we did with T.J. Kirk and the Bob Marley album I made."
