"I had a friend named Sharon Wolf," Bob Nieske explains. "You'd look in her
refrigerator, and think there was nothing in the house to eat, but she could always make a
great soup out of stuff you'd never think of putting together. So I wrote a song called
Wolf Soup -- I recorded it with Jimmy Giuffre on his album Quasar -- and
later saw how the concept fit the personalities in this band. Everyone is a complete
individual, but put them all together and you get something, um, ... nourishing."

.....Bob Nieske's Wolf Soup floats through a universe of rich harmony, inventive melody
and popping grooves. Thoughtful and moody, this is serious original music played with a sense of humor by master musicians. "Wolf Soup's CD, My Desire...good for you, based on
unexpected choices, a merging of diverse flavors; and tastes...from Charlie Haden to Sidney Bechet: that's the kind of soup we're in."
"Extravagant, challenging, wonderful jazz."
