After eight releases with his Jazz Orchestra, and a stellar duo recording with pianist Claude Sifferlen, Indianapolis trumpeter Mark Buselli turns to his quintet for a wide-ranging set of six originals plus a new take on Ellington's "Angelica."

Jazz Scan (Ric Bang)
For several years now, "jazz" has become an increasingly misused term.

The opening title track has appealing melody and solos. Pianist Steve Allee's "Slider" could be right off of a 1965 Lee Morgan album. There's nothing wrong with that ...
