Album Review
Wedge
Reviewed 2009-03-27 
Mainstream jazz with a mellow, nighttime contemporary sheen. The idea is to show off new compositions, of course, and they're handled expertly with some really good soloing.

1- Sly, sneaky feel.
2- Lightly bopping, a bit mellow & loungy
3- Sparkly bop, mid/fast
4- Slowish, lovely-ish
5- A small march, playfully tense. Some cool soloing.
6- Mid/fast, rolling.
7- Drummerless chamber-like start, into a friendly mid/fast piece.
8- Midtempo interlude showing a cerebral kind of swing.
9- Strong pulsing theme.
10- Placid flute, builds into a searing sax solo.
