Album Review

Reviewed 2006-11-24 
Bop-related jazz trio (sax/bass/drums), with some free-jazz moments. Bright and cool. Composing has modern touches (it's mostly not your '50s straight bebop) but should be pleasing to mainstream-jazz ears. Robinson also has abstract free-improv cred and has played in some nice free-jazz groups including Cosmologic.

1- Fairly straight stuff, great fast soloing space
2- Upbeat mid/fast, herky-jerky theme. Buzzy sax solo opens.
3- Midtempo strolling
4- Easygoing mid/fast, with a couple of solid sax solos. Very quiet start. Title refers to the Community Music Center in San Francisco.
5- Slow. Gets rather disjoint
6- Floaty wandering
7- Soaring intro, into nice mid/fast groove
8- Airy theme and strong, intense soloing, mid/fast. Bass solo intro.
9- Midtempo
10- Mid/fast straight feel, upbeat with a nice edge
