Internationally acclaimed as one of the most explosive and innovative jazz-centric bands to emerge from Philadelphia, Drivetime’s become an institution there, forging ahead in some configuration since the mid-70s with an eclectic, groove-driven vibe they call Urban Organic Jazz. They follow up their popular release IGNITION! by cruising West with the likewise rhythmically diverse CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’. Propelled by Gene Terramani’s electric axe, Richard Orr’s blazing sax and Jimmy Dell’Orefice’s old school keys, the six piece unit balances their easy flowing, crisply played seductive cool with free-spirited muscular jams fusing edgy rock, jazz, blues and even surf guitar. Their soul’s still in Philly, but this album will have you CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’!
