Fiona's Comments

With the uniting charm of Morticia Addams, this tune is "Not just pretty words." All this and a flute feature... #delayrepay

About the Album

"When There Were Trains" is an original composition by pianist-composer Mike Holober featured on his new CD "Balancing Act." Over the past decade-plus, pianist and composer Mike Holober has become one of the jazz world’s busiest and most renowned big band mainstays—as a composer, arranger and conductor. Now, he returns to a small group format and presents his first CD in six years - "Balancing Act." The recording features a newly assembled stellar octet, also called Balancing Act, comprised of vocalist Kate McGarry, saxophonists Jason Rigby and Dick Oatts, trumpeter Marvin Stamm, trombonist Mark Patterson, bassist John Hébert and drummer Brian Blade—all long-time associates of Holober who have assisted him with other projects over the years but never have played together as a unit.
