Solid new release from drummer Bishop, following on the heels of Little Played Little Bird
, his reinterpretation of obscure Ornette Coleman tunes, and one of the best things released in 2012. This time around, he gets closer to a straight-ahead modern post-bop sound, but the same odd fluidity he brought to Coleman's music, he applies here, too, making straight-ahead music move in directions other than straight. A quartet session with Weber Iago on piano and Rhodes, Chris Higgins on bass, and Richard Cole on a variety of wind instruments. Best tracks on the album have Cole performing on bass clarinet and bass saxophone. Just plain enjoyable.
