"Fellow gen-x pal of mine and I used to go see Barret Deems on Sunday nights live at the Elbo Room in Chicago between 1994-1997. He was 80+ years old and still as agile as ever on the skins. A real marvel. When I moved to San Diego in '97...my pal suprised me by sending this CD off Amazon...and let me tell you, it's fantasic. Very progressive modern, risque Buddy-Rich style jazz arrangements on this CD. Deems has backed the best of the best...Louis Armstrong, Frank Sintatra etc etc...but here he's center stage. If you dig drummer-led bands, dig this CD...it's kind of got a trippy, early to mid 70's feel to it. Barret proved you don't have to be young to be a hep-cat. Dig it."
