Daily Yinz – The Clock Reads – Elation

The Clock Reads is a Pittsburgh jazz-rock quartet whose recordings evoke the breezy flow of a jam band concert.

Technical without being showy and freeform without feeling directionless, “Elation” is one part Lotus, one part Pat Metheney, all parts heady, bro.
