MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Oregon Jazz Scene

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Benny Powell can hand you a resume with the likes of Basie, Jones-Lewis, Heath, and Benny Carter to name a few. This time out, however, it's Benny's own band with TK Blue on reeds, Sayuri Goto, piano, Essiet Essiet, bass, Billy Hart, drums. The group begins with a New Orleans-like street march called "Free to Be Me." It seems to set the pace for the remaining nine originals by various band members. For the most part, there's a nice, laid-back, confident, free-swinging feeling to this music. Powell calls it his best CD to date, and I wouldn't argue the point.
