Review: Pianist Bass is back. Surrounding himself with Grammy winners and nominees, the swinging improv man lets fly on a program of mostly originals that harken back to the real music days. Hot stuff with everyone on board in top flight. Karrin Allyson provides vocals on 2 tracks
If You Like: McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Pablo Sanchez
