Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-06-04 
A spritely modern take on bebop from Ravi, who's developed a respected identity separate from his famous dad. Lots of spirited playing with firey sax solos, well executed. Ravi plays fast and fluid, with a dry funky snap that recalls Steve Coleman's M-Base stuff -- not as rhythmically complex, but definitely a nod in that direction (see #2 especially).

1*- Fast, Ravi gets into the quick-flowing notes immediately
2*- Mid/fast funk, a bit like Steve Coleman
3- Gently but rapidly tumbling. Theme in 5/8 time
4- Staggery and short
5- Mingus tune. Slow and pleasant.
6- Mid/fast
7*- A fast, disjointed "Round Midnight"
8- Fast
9- Monk standard, slow, warm
10- Midtempo, a cool little vibe
