A place, a mentality, a state of being.
We've all been there.
Its in the morning after a night of hot jazz, dancing, and debauchery,
in the sound of a perfectly hit China cymbal,
Heavily handed octaves in the bottom register of the piano,
an uprigh bass digging in so hard it buzzes,
a trumpet wailing a hot melody....

In Trashland lies the spirit of Jazz, and with this record we summoned that energy in its many forms.

"Bonnie Northgraves 'new release "Welcome to Trashland" is a great listen! Bonnie is a soulful and swinging performer wether she's playing the horn or singing and this album finds her in top form; assured and steeped in the jazz tradition, grooving, and perfectly at home with the old, the new, and the in-between. (Ghost of a Chance is a personal favourite!)"

-Brad Turner, Trumpeter/Pianist

"Bonnie Northgraves' new album is proof that there's still plenty of juice left in the traditional jazz box, and that there's lots of room to add new flavours. Unmet Expectations is the best track on an album full of best tracks"

-Tim Reinert, host of the Infidels Jazz Show
