In 2000 Previte reconvenes his acoustic “Bump the Renaissance” quintet, but with new members Ray Anderson on trombone and the legendary Steve Swallow on electric bass. Armed with a new contract from Palmetto Records, and with three European tours behind them, they record “Just Add Water” and it is released in 2001.
