Featuring guitar greats Robben Ford and Bill Frisell and bassist J. Anthony Granelli, the material on Dance Hall reflects Jerry Granelli's deep gratitude to the artists who originally wrote and recorded these great songs, and at this point in his life the sheer joy of playing the drums.
"The key was not doing covers, but finding songs that were personal to my journey,"Jerry Granelli says. "We kept it as open and spontaneous as possible, this one is about the joy of finding the freedom in the form."
