DoAM is the Documentation of American Music Initiative, a recording series by Planet Arts. This is a strong performance highlighted by "Tom Sails Away", "The Camp-Meeting" and "Watchman". The rhythm section is exceptional with pianist Randy Ingram, bassist Andy McKee, Vince Cherico (d) and Alex Wintz (g). They inject solos along the way with the brass to make this session sing!"
