About
R and B is the second track on the Matt Nowlin Jazz Orchestra's debut LP, The Good News! The album was recorded in a country church. The whole band was recorded on three vintage RCA ribbon microphones and the signals were mixed straight to tape. The vinyl all-analog product was mastered to vinyl by Roger Seibel of SAE Mastering.

R and B begins deceptively with slow stride-piano before emerging as an up-tempo blues. Throughout the piece, the form freely shifts between eight, twelve and sixteen bar extensions of the blues. The tune's first solo is exceptionally up-beat and succinct, played by the bright new trombonist Jake Handelman. The short trumpet statement is by Sampson. After a long crescendo, the piece softly closes with drums and piano.
