Here's a new one (for us, anyway)... George (the pianist) leading his Theoretical Planets band on drums... two tenor saxophone (Nicole Glover and Joe Mantis, Jon Lakey on drums and Tony Glausi on trumpet (3,4,5)... as I listen to the 8:15 "Con Woman", it's evident that his rhythm-keeping skills are just as healthy as his keyboard chops... the tune gives voice to each and every player, and they will "WOW" you! The opener, "Gorgasaurus", will thrill you, especially if you love those reeds... some killer sax here. It was the 6:48 "Harmawhatics" that turned out to be my personal favorite of the ten tracks offered up for your aural pleasure... tasty horn-mesh, great drums & some superb brass all combine to make a tune you'll not soon forget... good solid jazz that will (definitely) sate your thirst! I give George & his compadres a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.99.
