  • Date Recorded: December 27, 2011
  • Artist / Band: Ransom Note
  • Hosting Show: Fishin' With Dynamite
  • Sound: Jon Valley

Somewhere in St. Louis, there's a candle-lit lounge where the rhythms flow, the singer croons and the soul never dies. Ransom Note is playing all night.

Capturing the heady jazz rock of Steely Dan and the lush latter-day groove of Van Morrison, Ransom Note is beginning to make its mark on the St. Louis scene, revealing a sometimes smooth, sometimes churning undercurrent to the soul revival. Featuring five veteran musicians -- Merv Schrock (vocals), Jon Parsons (keyboards, vocals) Sherman S. Sherman (bass), Ron Leible (drums, vocals) and Ben Parsons (guitar, vocals) -- the band released its first CD, "It's You!" in 2011, and celebrates with a party at Off Broadway on December 30.
