Reviews of This Recording
....another very nice Crane River Jazz Band recording, courtesy of the Longs and Liz Biddle....perhaps they may be prevailed to release some more in the near future. Colyer and Crane River fans would surely welcome that and will want to have this

Reviews of This Recording
All Crane River Jazz Band aficionados will want to have this CD, and it could serve as a useful introduction for those unfamiliar with the band. The band here is comprised of most of the original Cranes, Colin Bowden filling in on drums for Ron Bowden (not related), and they are in top form, playing as if they never had parted before. Colyer and Morris dovetail just as they did in the past, and Sunshine weaves wonderful solos as well as obbligatos behind other soloists. Colyer, too, cannot resist joining in to back Sunshine and Morris when they solo.
