The Band, featured on this record is the same Band which opened the JVC Jazz Festival in 2002, playing at the Schoenberg; received standing ovations at The Clef Club in Philadelphia; and was declared the “Highlight” of The Mellon Jazz Festival.

“Mickey Bass’s long-running ensemble is hard bop with fire and soul; the jumping quintet always lives up to its name.”

“It was clearly The Highlight of the Mellon Jazz Festival! The work of The New York Powerhouse Ensemble at “The Crawford Grill”, stood far above all the other festival events because of the sax mans’ (Abraham Burton) playing and the work of the rest of the group, led by Hill District native; Bassist Mickey Bass, and featuring pianist John Hicks and Drummer Eric Allen.
