If the opening track, ?LaPorta? is any indicator, you?re in for one wonderful jazz ride ? Jack?s drums will transport you to movements you never knew existed on this one! Just the kind of jazz you hardcore jazzers will fall in love with in only moments? Jack is joined by Scott Robinson on tenor/soprano sax & flute, Art Davis doing trumpet & flugelhorn, John McLean on guitar, Bob Bowman on bass & Kelly Sill doing some spots on bass as well. The slinky alleycat feel on ?Hip Check? made it my personal favorite, in great part because of John?s fantastic (& highly energetic) guitar solos?. anyway you hear it, these players are as mentally & musically flexible as any you?ll hear these days. They get my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an ?EQ? (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.
