    “An extraordinary jazz album you have to hear to believe.”—Marc Myers, JazzWax
    Mike Neer plays songs from The Real Book on lap steel guitar, ukulele and bass with special guests. This project was inspired by the gift of Sol Hoopii's Rickenbacher steel guitar, which Mike plays on every track. That and his love of Jazz make this a special addition to the lexicon of Jazz recordings.
