The Hi-Fly Orchestra has always been a real band, right from the start in 2005. They love vintage recording techniques, all their gear crammed in one room and getting the music on tape in a jam session situation. The opening chords of ‘Uncle Green’ already prove the point. ‘Get Ready’ is a journey in style. Think of Lonnie Smith’s immediacy and rhythmic urgency circa ‘Move Your Hands’, the casual spirituality of Horace Silver with a hint of Lee Dorsey’s style of turning rhythm & blues into soul, even Vince Guaraldi’s versatile, comforting jazz sound is somewhere in ‘Get Ready’.
