On ‘The Long Ride’ you can hear typical catchy melodies, large arcs, long build-ups and plenty of space for solos. The album reflects the live sound of the band pretty well. The first album was fully produced in the studio around the baritone sax, but ‘The Long Ride’ puts the whole band in the spotlight.

Tom Trapp contributed three compositions to the repertoire. His energetic and extroverted solos can be heard in his compositions ‘Lightning Girl’ and ‘Equalizer’. ‘Chicago’ is a piece that certainly lingers.

‘Say It Quietly’ is the ballad with an alto sax feature and Tini’s favorite moment.

‘Petals’ made it also to the the album: Looped Baritone grooves that have been developed from a solo performance into a duo style performance between Hitchcock and Thomsen: dreamy moments with grooves á la ‘Itchy Fingers’.

With this album ‘The Long Ride’, Thomsen wants to fulfill what was prophesied in the German newspaper ‘Hamburger Zeit:

“She will play on stages around the entire world.”
