Since its rollicking debut at the 2012 Detroit Jazz Festival, the Mack Avenue SuperBand has become a tradition at the annual event, a gathering of label superstars that the Motor City can look forward to every Labor Day weekend.

This live album features the third incarnation of the Mack Avenue SuperBand, an all-star group drawn from the superb roster of the Mack Avenue label. Once again, this ensemble joined forces under the leadership of bassist Rodney Whitaker to dazzle a Detroit crowd in Hart Plaza, with the results captured on this recording. Joining Whitaker are three-time veterans Aaron Diehl on piano, drummer Carl Allen and guitarist Evan Perri of the Hot Club of Detroit. Alto saxophonist Tia Fuller returns from the SuperBand’s debut outing, while vibraphonist Warren Wolf and tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum make it two in a row. Regardless of the personnel from year to year, the SuperBand comprises a distinctive blend of generations and styles, reflecting the diversity of the label itself.
