Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-11-14 
Jazz guitar and Hammond B3 organ. A quietly cooking brand of straight jazz with the occasional free-jazz scribbling (1, 9, or the end of 5). Minasi is a product of '50s jazz but enjoys tossing out some wild solos -- not as creative or liquid as Joe Morris, but still good.

The saxophonist is Mark Whitecage, who's best known for free-jazz sessions. He adds intriguing post-bop playing to even the more conservative tracks (3) and gets to go nuts on a few (1,7).

1- Bright and fast; a progressive take on Cole Porter
2- Fairly fast, with an intriguing, loping theme.
3- Slow shuffle
4- Mid/fast. Fun quivering guitar solo.
5- Midtempo cooker, fairly quiet
6- Calypso-lounge, mid-fast. Cool organ solo.
7- Bopping little theme, mid/fast. Gets a bit crazy
8- Slow, dreamy
9- Fast, swirling, and free. An unexpected reading of this usually mellow standard.
