Follow-up album to last year?s excellent Imaginary Sketches
. McCullough?s trumpet and Weijters? piano have a symbiosis that should be the envy of others. This is jazz for a rainy day, no matter if it?s the cabin-fever variety or the kick back and relax sort of thing. McCullough gets to soaring, but has weight on those wings, and Weijters has a nice way of balancing the piano?s melodic and rhythmic traits. For this album, Piet Verbist is added as the bass player, and he had an excellent album of his own this year (and Jazz Pick) titled Zygomatik
.. John Bishop on drums, and you can?t go wrong there. Pick of the Week.
