    Played with respect and admiration for the artists who wrote, performed and lived these songs



The sophomore effort by the Secret Six There’s Something In My Eye And It’s You! revives the the best aspects of unspoiled New Orleans music with collective improvisation. A distinctive texture of early jazz from New Orleans which Louis Armstrong said derived from the old sanctified churches. A heterophony of call and response phrases that create a musical world that does not depend on conventional harmony. The collective improvisation balances total order and total chaos with uncompromising intensity.
