MUSIC REVIEW BY Hobart Taylor, KUCI.org

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Vibrant, in the pocket, and cliche free this release is straight ahead small ensemble jazz with Latin tinges. Saxophonist Vega's compositions are delicate, nuanced, sophisticated, and intimate. Up beat tunes like "A Confluence in Chi-town" or "The Wizard" are compelling brain ticklers, and the mini-suite "Taurus on the Run" and "Taurus and Virgo" featuring the personable trumpet performance of Victor Garcia stand out. This is a rich and rewarding release. My favorite moments are contained in the jagged rhythms and tempo changes in "Chicago Eight".
