John Ellis is the MAN! Great straight-ahead sax player, and a nice guy. I hung out with him & the Charlie Hunter band years ago (when John was in the Charlie Hunter quartet) and he always remembered to call me & put me on the guest list for the remainder of his tenure with the band. I would LOVE to hear him with John Pattuchi, who is an absolute MONSTER bass player. Ellis is hitting the 'big time' now, tho, for better or worse.. Sting? Mos Def? (that jazz stuff Mos Def was doing sounds HOT, too!)

Just got back from seeing these guys at Sullivan Hall in NYC. They absolutely killed it. Every song was played perfectly and everyone tore it up. These guys are professionals in every sense of the word. A transcendent musical experience. If you have the chance, don't miss them!!! :-)
