Acclaimed Canadian trumpeter/vocalist/songwriter Leif Arntzen (Channeling Chet 2000, TLAB 2003) re-appears in 2006 with a ground- breaking new working band The Leif Arntzen Quartet, performing “All Ellington", a modern jazz/rock/folk trip into a collection of song classics by America's late great composer/arranger Duke Ellington. The quartet's groove-based freeform arrangements alternately soar, swing, rock, funk, folk, blues it up with TLAQ's deep bag of unusual sounds and life-loved soul. Leif will take the band into the studio in early 2006 to record the results of their journey into “All Ellington" for Gwendoline Records.
