Review: A cohesive unit that commands an exceptional stylistic range and exhibits a go-for-broke attitude. On their sophomore release, the pianoless quartet delivers more of the bright melodic lines, deep-seated grooves, catchy rhythmic devices and sophisticated incorporating improvisations that run wild, as soloists embrace aggressive and daring ideas from the realms of modal jazz, free-jazz, second-line and soul, not to mention good old-fashioned swing.
