The CD is a jazz trio of trumpet/flugelhorn, keyboards, and bass, playing jazz standards with some interesting twists.
This jazz CD features John Harbaugh on trumpet and flugelhorn, David Deacon-Joyner and Reuel Lubag on keyboards, with Jon Hamar and Ryan Donnelly on electric and upright bass. The recordings were done over a two day session and include standards which feature all of the members of the trio as soloists. Effects were used on "Well, You Needn't" and there is a flugelhorn- piano duet on "It Could Happen to You". The title "Chillaxin" was used to describe the hopeful effect of listening to these tracks. Hearing a jazz trio without drums is an interesting and refreshing sound.
