The Guardian newspaper recently posted a list their music teams list of songs or albums, old or new, they just can’t turn off. On that list list was James Farm:

James Farm This new band is being loudly cheered onstage by insiders, but the American cooperative quartet James Farm goes back a long way. Star saxophonist Joshua Redman, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland are former members of the popular SFJAZZ Collective, and pianist Aaron Parks hired Penman and Harland for his debut album, Invisible Cinema. The foursome’s a class act with broad contemporary awareness and a sense of what works with the wider public, but with all its jazz instincts creatively intact. This album’s out late this month.
