Genre: Jazz
Review: Roberts returns leading a quartet of some of the leading young players, plus the exemplary Jeff "Tain" Watts on drums and "continues to present music that retains a distinctive strength and originality, rooted in tradition, while firmly grounded in new perspectives." They do a terrific take on "A Train". Six tunes are originals.
