Crafted in the vibrant, cross-cultural setting of the San Francisco Bay Area, Everybody is a celebration of community and human connection. Longtime friends and collaborators Molly Skuse and Dana Hinchliffe wrote and produced this buoyant blend of jazz and salsa to express their inclusive musical vision and share complex musical ideas that simply swing.
Bringing together a powerfully talented cohort of regional musicians, the Sixth Street All Stars pay homage to Fania All Stars, the seminal musical collective that pioneered a modern Afro-Caribbean /Jazz hybrid for the mainstream. The group's name also marks the corner of Sixth and Allston in Berkeley, California, where the album took shape.
From this little corner, a world of influences inspires 11 original compositions that command a rich palette of harmonic hues, strong melodic lines, and deeply textured rhythms. With Everybody, the Sixth Street All Stars create a sonic street mural; a new landmark in the musical landscape.
