Trumpeter Goode definitely has his own singular voice on his instrument, and it?s been neat hearing him develop it over time. He never seems to stop searching for the right equation to fully blossom. On this recording, he mixes some modern nu-jazz with some traditional music forms, and then rounds out his sextet with a guitarist who doubles on sitar and fills another seat with rik & darbouka. The album is a bit uneven, though tracks like ?St. Louis Blues? and ?Chicago Red? serve as evidence of Goode?s talent for making experimentalism sound very cool, and why his music should be heard and followed.
