Surefire Sweat is made up of a diverse and multi-generational roster of Toronto-based artists. The music, composed by Juno-nominated drummer, Larry Graves, draws on an amalgam of Funk, Jazz, Brass Band, Blues and Worldy rhythms.
Inventive arrangements act as a vehicle for the all-star cast of musicians to engage listeners through improvisational explorations and danceable arrangements. Despite being dominantly instrumental in nature, each of the group's
unique pieces is propelled by a narrative: colourful journeys that emote real time metaphors of the human condition.
"Cool compositions, captivating arrangements and powerful horn sections are part of this modern jazz album ...powerful and grooving..."
-Wulf Muller, All That Jazz
