MUSIC REVIEW BY Rick Anderson, CD Hotlist

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

From the strutting, spiky "Devolution" to the spidery, boppish "Let's Make a Break for It," the second quartet album led by guitarist George Cotsirilos continues his longstanding practice of writing and playing straight-ahead jazz that sounds like no one else. Here he leads the same combo that accompanied him last time (pianist Keith Saunders, bassist Robb Fischer, drummer Ron Marabuto), and if anything they're even tighter and more supple than they were on 2018's outstanding Mostly in Blue. Notice, for example, how lithely they negotiate the constantly changing rhythmic structure of "Aftermath," and how tightly they swing on the uptempo numbers. Cotsirilos' tone is warm and golden, and his melodic and harmonic ideas just seem to flow like water. Another triumph from one of our finest exponents of jazz guitar.
