Intuition

The YJC Quintet recorded Intuition on October 11 & 12, 2014 in San Diego, with a special Release Event in the Village Area of Yuma Palms Regional Center on December 4. Six of the tunes were composed by trumpeter Steven Hennig, and one is by guitarist Carl Posch. The title track, with music and lyrics by Hennig, is sung by Yuma vocalist and music instructor Eloisa Arviso. Posch contributed an upbeat shuffle entitled Shut the Uffle Up. The other Hennig tunes are Late Night Taco Stand, a Latin tune with emphasis on congas, a brooding ballad Well Worn Sole, an up tempo Brazilian samba featuring drummer Brandon Coz titled Cozy Samba, laid-back swing tune called Let’s Remain at Large, and (She Is) Everything Plus, a driving, romantic Latin tune.
