Steve Bailey remarks, “This is the quintessential super group – each member having an illustrious body of work spanning decades. For most of us, each of these musicians is part of the soundtrack of our lives. And then they get together and prove that as great as each player, writer, arranger or producer is, this band is greater than the sum of its parts! They simply defy the laws of math, physics, and music, for that matter!”
The band’s newest video for their song “New York Minute” recently premiered online via M Music & Musicians Magazine, and the clip is available online at https://youtu.be/WhAhgXKcFtA.
