Description: Having raced to the number one spot on the JazzWeek chart with its previous album Connect the Dots, staying in the top 10 slot for nine amazing weeks, the VJE attains maximum liftoff in reaching a wide range of listeners with its new recording, Night Mode. The group's 6th album is a heady, entertaining mix of original compositions by various members, jazz classics, and obscure, "under-served" gems. Night Mode delivers high-octane, fun, straight ahead jazz for everyone -- from new jazz listeners to aficionados!
