Modern jazz with sax and piano, a session with energy and sparkle. It might get categorized as "free jazz," and Brown does throw some skronk into his playing, but really it's a mildly outside session with plenty of drive. Brown is the focus, tossing out some nicely rolling, creative solos. Taborn's keys add a nice splash of cool on tracks like 6, but he also holds back for long stretches, leaving Brown to lead a pure trio (parts of 2,5). Really nice album. Instrumental; FCC clean.|
1- Digs in for some gutsy sax soloing backed by piano. Starts quite a bit outside. Great, spiky piano solo.
2- Mid/fast, bright
3- A slow, quiet calm.
4- Just oozes cool: Sly bass riff, calmly strutting sax/piano. A tuneful knowing wink in your direction.
5- Starts freely but gets into a cool push-and-pull theme and a nice piano solo
6- Twisty; moderate tempo
7- Heavy Eastern-Euro theme.
