The group’s latest iteration features Mitch Henry on organ, Kyle Miles on bass, and Charles Haynes on drums, all working at top form. Haynes is drumming with incredible energy; Henry’s work on the organ has an earthy quality that feels like an embrace on the tune itself; Miles’ bass is inspired; and all throughout the piece is Strickland blowing with soul.
