MUSIC REVIEW BY Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Thoughtful, provocative fare by a tight quintet of alto saxophonist Peter Epstein, guitarist Jeff Miley, keyboardist and principal composer James Miley, bassist Roger Shew and drummer Brian Hamada. They stride into the alt-jazz camp on spiky numbers like "Gadfly,"
"The Ballad of Ned Flanders" and the hard-hitting "Dark Matter." The buoyant "Wishfull Thinking" and the swinging "Tumble," built on flowing unisons between Epstein's alto and Jeff Miley's guitar, are more solidly in the jazz camp. And they take a cleansing breath on the dramatic closer, "One". First-rate writing by Miley, strong improvising by all.
