More than any other artist in traditional jazz today, saxophonist/composer/arranger Kenny Garrett and his band are known to entice audiences to want to get up and groove. It is this spirit that Garrett has instigated and witnessed from stages around the world that fills Do Your Dance! – the saxophonist's fourth for Mack Avenue Records.

Do Your Dance! is a travelogue of rhythm from the melodic lilt of "Calypso Chant" and the soothing, Brazil - inspired "Bossa" to the summer barbecue spirit of "Backyard Groove" and "Philly." It was inspiration in liquefied form that resulted in the novel "Wheatgrass Shot (Straight to the Head)," one of two tracks featuring rapper Mista Enz (Donald Brown, Jr.) of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Rounding out Do Your Dance! are "Persian Steps" (built from the ground up with just Ronald Bruner, Jr. on drums and Garrett on piano, later adding flute, a chant and shruti box – an Indian accordion he discovered in Germany) and "Chasing the Wind" (Garrett composing a piece at top speed in the tradition of bop standards that jazz musicians challenge themselves with by playing at triple time).

Garrett dedicated "Waltz (3 Sisters)" to his fairer siblings. "My sisters have always been my support system in every way. Wherever I show up, they're the first ones there. Sometimes you take it for granted because that's family...but it doesn't have to be that way. So I wrote one for them."
