From the press release:

empathy by Blow

Ted Vining loves music. Bob Sedergreen knows the heart of the groove comes from Africa. BLOW feels the same. There is a word for this, empathy.

empathy is a loving treatment of some of the most requested tunes, originals and jazz masterpieces, from BLOW’s 5 year Thursday night residency at ‘The Horn’ in Melbourne.

empathy was recorded and mixed at Howling Wind Studios in the inspirational maritime landscape of the Bellarine Peninsula. The fidelity of these recordings arises from the all analogue studio and the band performing ‘one take live’ in front of a small (welcomely uninvited) passionate audience.

Blow is: Ted Vining (drums), Bob Sedergreen (piano), Peter Harper (tenor sax), Ian Dixon (trumpet) and Gareth Hill (double bass).

empathy is a available through the artist (, and from February 2013 through Planet MGM Distribution.
