Drummer Phil Parisot leads a team of Steve Treseler/ts-ss, Dan Kramlich/key-p and Michael Glynn/b through a collection of originals with a handful of covers. Of the latter, the obscure Ellington piece ""Low Key Lightly" is a lusciously relaxed ballad with Kramlich's suave touch caressing the piano. The team goes off to the races as Parisot cracks the whip on Jerry Bergonzi's "Different Places Together" and the team gets cozy on the keyboards and tenor for the delightful "One For Hugh." The drummer's own "Collae" has an irresistible groove for Treseler's tenor, likewise a hip pulse gets the fingers popping on "Staircase." A pair of vignettes let the leader show his wares on various patterns and instruments, including a gong on "The Drumset" so you get a real workshop on this rewarding session.
