- Mr. Goble delivers a gem...original and fresh...! - JazzTimes
For his second recording as a leader, bassist Will Goble is joined by drummer Dave Potter, his long-time rhythm section mate in Jason Marsalis' Quartet, master saxophonist Greg Tardy and the Atlanta-based pianist Louis Heriveaux. Through arrangements of compositions by Mary Lou Williams and George Gershwin, and originals inspired by the 2015 Nepali earthquakes, racial injustice, and other emotion-charged events, Goble presents the blues as an aesthetic through which all people can make their stories known. From the opening "Another Man Gone Down," a traditional chain gang song with guest vocalist Tabreeca Woodside, to Goble's uptempo "The Ants Went Marching One By One But They Didn’t Come Back," the blues are captured with a variety of outlooks, but always through the infinitely variable lens of swing.
