Ben Somers Quartet 'Steelrail Counterpoint'

For my birthday a couple of years ago I took my Dad to Nashville. Country music has always been an integral part of my life due to Dad being firmly entrenched in that world. he'd never been so it seemed like th right time to go. Due to jet lag and middle of the night existential crises my mind wouldn't settle enough to sleep. From my bedroom window in the apartment we rented in East Nash I could hear the Amtrak trains calmly bellowing in the distance. This tune drifted into my head during that time. It features Rob Updegraff on guitar, Steve Watts on bass & Tim Giles on drums.
