Produced by Brian Atkinson / Andy Finseth

1998 recording from Edmonds Community College vocal ensemble Soundsation, directed by Kirk Marcy. A fourteen-voice mixed group, with rhythm combo/piano accompaniment, Soundsation integrates progressive, swing and the occasional arrrangement of a pop chart into a forum for jazz exploration. Whether "Teach Me Tonight," with its extended intro, multi-bar piano solo and improvised melody in the verse, or the arcing "doyts" and charging pace of "Ticket To Ride," Soundsation utilizes all of the tools of the trade. Gene Puerling's "Just In Time" will raise your heart rate with its presto tempo. Ward Swingle's arrangements of "Blue Rondo a la Turk" and "Up A Lazy River" are a cappella (as is "Blame It On My Youth"). The cut-time of the "Battle Hymn Of The Republic" is dramatically revised, for a truly distinctive closer.
