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). The group released their first self-titled album in January 2022 on Shifting Paradigm Records, and are currently working on their second.
