"Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues" is the second track on tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's new CD Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground, featuring Preminger's kindred quartet with trumpeter Jason Palmer, bassist Kim Cass, and drummer Ian Froman.
Following on the success of his 2015 release, Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar, Preminger continues his exploration of the Delta Blues, delving into nine haunting blues classics with stark but vigorous new arrangements.
Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground was recorded at the Sidedoor Jazz Club in Old Lyme, Connecticut, and engineered by Jimmy Katz.
