Smilin' by The Nineteenth Hole on Westbound. The 19th Whole were an Indianapolis-based funky jazz outfit who were part of a very vibrant scene. Jazz guitar legend Grant Green had originally hailed from there and he recruited the members of the 19th Whole as his rhythm section for live dates. Green also discovered the other great Indianapolis jazz outfit Funk Inc at about this time. The attention that followed their work with Green allowed the Nineteenth Whole to sign with producer Bob Porter for Eastbound, a label he had set up with Detroit independent Westbound Records
