Review: On his latest disc, saxophonist Robinson seems to be more of a visionary here than usual, a move from being an already great saxophonist to being a strong leader and writer as well! The album's way more than the sum of its parts – thanks in part to a wealth of original compositions by Robinson, which propel the whole group forward with a unified spirit – one that often has all members of the quartet contributing equally.
