Baba Gets 4 Stars from All About Jazz!

Happy Orchestra’s debut album Baba received 4 stars from Paul Rauch at All About Jazz!

“Happy Orchestra in a way encapsulates the jocular personality of its creator and leader, blending overwhelming positivity, with virtuosity, utilizing the talents of some of the top jazz and funk soloists on the west coast. While the music may express the intricacies of modern jazz expressionism, it never loses sight of its soulful, horn powered grooves, supported by the rhythmic virtuosity and leadership of Abouzied on drums.”
