Drummer/composer Dave King has become enamored with the concept of bridging the gap between American roots music and the avant-garde. He has created The Trucking Company as a palette for mixing both musical styles and superior musical talents not of the mainstream. As a matter of fact, the ensemble could be seen as the poster child for bands revolting against the “academic” lean of mainstream jazz, preferring a slant toward the corporeal.The Trucking Company's new recording Adopted Highway was recorded with earthy intentions. The ensemble, featuring guitarist Erik Fratzke, bassist Adam Linz along with saxophonists Chris Speed and Brandon Wozniak, recorded onto two-inch tape providing a warm analog sound along with the immediacy of only being able to do one or two takes per tune.
