Mintz, Billy
Ugly Beautiful (Disc 2)
Genre: Jazz
Review: Ambitious 2-CD set by talented drummer and his stellar quintet fronted by two versatile saxophonists & held together by Roberta Piket on keyboards. A sprawling studio recording that sounds live. Some of the tunes are revisited with new improvisations
