Sweeter All the Time is simply jazz and folk art about life in the fullest, played by an all-star cast. Much of this collection is inspired by Kevin''s daughter Ellie, including the title cut, Sweeter All the Time, a contemporary jazz groove called Smoothie, the funky Rolling on The Elephant, Swinging High, The Happy Guitarist, and a lullaby called Angels Whispering in Your Ear, something Grandma said happened to Ellie when she was just a few months old.
Thanks is a tribute to legend guitarists Howard Roberts, Joe Pass, and Chet Atkins. Out of Towner is a humorous and harmonically challenging bebop tune, written about visiting relatives, and I Dig Snow is a folk song with jazz overtones, written about Colorado snow.
The core trio features Kevin Karrick on guitars, Jesse Lucas on 6-string, fretless bass and Colorado drummer, Mark Raynes. Byron Hamer, another Colorado veteran, adds Saxophone and Flute to three of the tunes, while pianist Mark Sloniker adds his recording experience and trademark expressiveness to another three.
