In April of 2012, Greg Ruby met Dennis Lichtman by coincidence one night in a Brooklyn music venue. Realizing their mutual interest of early jazz, they were soon making plans for a short tour through Northern Virginia featuring some of the finest old school jazz musicians from different parts of the country. In August, 2012 The Rhythm Runners convened. With concerts underway, the group found themselves hired in a recording studio. At the end of the day with an extra hour to spare, they added these two tracks by Greg Ruby to the session: “You Should’a Been There” and “Someone Told Me Your Secret.”
What was left to do with two songs but release them on vinyl!
