 Take That Back started as the meeting-of-the-minds of two veteran musicians, Joan Hutton and Sue Orfield. Drawn together by a passion for original music, both bandleaders are composers and improvisers, each with her own unique musical voice. Joan Hutton plays bass clarinet and alto sax and Sue Orfield plays the tenor sax. They are joined most often by Ted Godbout (piano), Kameron Markworth (bass), and David Schmalenberger (drums).

“Joan Hutton and Sue Orfield’s Take that Back opens with the smooth dark chocolate crooning of Hutton’s bass clarinet…then Orfield’s tenor sax enters and interweaves lines with Hutton’s, and the pairing of sounds presented with the two reeds and the piano, bass and drums rhythm team is something special indeed.” – Dan McClenaghan (All About Jazz, 2022)
