Apart from Ms. Dennerlein's great B3 playing (bass pedals and all), the trump card in this lively and bluesy all-instrumental set just has to be Ray Anderson's amazing trombone work. He plays his instrument like no other trombonist I've ever heard and gets to flex his musical chops in fine style on the nearly 12 minutes long It Just So Happens. Mitch Watkins and Ronnie Burrage (who wrote one track) lend fine support too on guitar and drums respectively, the latter so good that one wonders why he doesn't seem to have appeared on any subsequent albums. Mitch Watkins' solo album Humhead is well worth checking out.
Digitally recorded and mixed by Carlos Albrecht at Tonstudio in Ludwigsburg and produced by Mathias Winckelman in July '88, six of the album's ten tracks are Dennerlein originals. The whole album brims with verve and a general feel-good factor, in many places bringing a smile to the listener's face. If you like the B3 in a hot and bluesy setting and can appreciate Ray Anderson's sometimes pretty off-the-wall trombone playing, then you really should give this a listen.
