Talk about being in the right place at the right time! Why do you know the opening track on this set by the long time mainstay of Seattle jazz? Because it's a music file in Windows XP making it one of the most listened to pieces of jazz this side of Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown themes. With more meat on it's bones than Eno's ta da wave, he knowingly rolls out a set of mostly originals with a little reliance on Miles and Trane for a piano jazz quartet set that takes it to the limit. A left leaning mainstream date that doesn't need to get far out to set itself apart, this is a sure fire winner for the serious listener looking for a date that really gets him. Hot stuff.
