They were a breath of fresh air for me in '93. Then my bass idol Stu Zender left, whom I felt, musically, was one of the most important guys in the band, after him Winston Rollins (trombone) left, then they kicked Simon Katz (guitar) out of the band. Last year, the amazing trumpeter Martin Shore left, and now Toby Smith (keys, writer & arranger), whom I thought was the other important musical force in the band, has left to spend more time with his family. Is it time to stick a fork in this band? I'll admit, I kinda jumped off the wagon with "Synchronized".
