Review: Hard to believe that, as Kenny Barron turns 75, his latest release is as muscular, fleet, and entertaining as any debut by any man two-thirds his age. Trust Barron's deeply-versed quintet to swing like a big band plus, and leap out at you with a jumping, bop personality. Always a passionate player and a writer with a tight, expansive flair, Barron is devoted to the expression of each player within the whole.
