1UP1DOWN is a new band led by saxophonist/composer Chris Kelsey. Live from Nowhere is the group's first release.

The first Sonny Rollins album I ever heard wasn’t Saxophone Colossus or Way Out West (both of which would eventually become two of my favorite records by any artist), or another of the other late-‘50s/early-‘60s albums which made his reputation as one of the two greatest tenor saxophonists of his generation. It was instead Easy Living, a mostly-forgotten 1977 effort that I still best remember for Rollins’s endlessly melodic treatment of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely.” Few would consider Easy Living—or, for that matter, any of Mr. Rollins’s ‘70s albums on the Milestone label—on the same exalted level as albums like Colossus, or West, or Tenor Madness, or The Bridge. But those ‘70s records have their own charm, largely due to Rollins’s sincere and obvious affection for contemporary instrumentation and musical forms.
