No Goodbyes was Tucker's first recording with his newly
assembled group in Austin, TX. Since 2004 they have been developing a
certain fresh sound that is unmistakable amongst other Modern Jazz groups today.
"I think people misunderstand how organic music really is. Once you find
the right people to play with, you just play. Not that I think practicing does

hope for the best. I think that applies to any creative endeavor."
The recording really captures a live context, in which the group tried to use
all of the first takes in the recording. "We actually rehearsed only once
before the session so we wouldn't take away from the spontaneity. Although we

Tucker and his group are truly dedicated to making unique and exciting Jazz
music, whether its on the road or at home in Austin be sure to check them out.
