Running Ahead Of Time

The Steve Himes Connection's second CD was recorded in April, 2000, and released in December of the same year.  Eleven original tracks explore jazz, Latin, Brazilian, and R&B grooves.  It is a fine example of the group's ability to take the listener to all kinds of places.  This CD features: Steve Himes - guitars, Jason Gay - saxophones, Chris Hudson - drums and percussion and Deron Sodaro - bass.  Guitarist, Josh Cannon, joins the group on two tracks. (For more information on these fine musicians go to personnel.)

When Running Ahead Of Time was juried into Tamarack: The Best Of West Virginia, the evaluation sheet read:

"Great recording of original jazz by one of the best jazz ensembles in WV.  Himes' writing features all the players, not just himself.  A great mix of tune styles, but scored for the players.  Keep up the good work.  Production quality is excellent!"

The Steve Himes Connection is much more than a Connection. This band is incredible. So many different sounds, so many types of music, so many jams.... This disc will keep your head bobbing for hours on end. This disc should come with a complimentary neck brace to reduce the effects of whiplash. BUY AND ENJOY IT
