Ian McDougall Quartet
The Warmth of the Horn

Concord Records
"There's something about the West Coast that coddles its musicians, keeps them dry despite torrential downpours, keeps them warm despite the damp, keeps them, period. Like the quartet you are listening to. They are all top flight Canadian musicians, yet they have resisted the siren call 'Go East, young man' that is supposed to be the only way to make it in the music business...The mixture here is a blend of originals – one each from Ian, Ron and Oliver – plus three rarely heard specialties and five standards."
