Dachtyl has a facile gift when it comes to digging deep in a genre and revealing something new
Dachtyl infuses her performance with plenty of testosterone muscle without the hard corners. She swings hard. Her drive is buoyed and propelled by drummers Jim Rupp and Cary Dachtyl, who keep the festivities moving, fast or slow.
Fritz the Night Owl:
The “LD” in LDB3 stands for Linda Dachtyl who continues the burnin’ B3 Columbus traditions set by Hank Marr, Don Patterson, and Tony Monaco (who produced the session on his newly formed Chicken Coup label).
On this debut CD, Linda and her compadres touch all the bases in the B3 bandbook: blues, ballads, bop, a bit of funk and Monk, a dash of Latin and some dreamy romance.
