Not a theater or circus act, but four seasoned musicians who almost hypothermic but with precision allow themselves the pleasure of making music together again for an hour. Again because they did this already in 2000. Tenor saxophonist Rick Mandyck opted to choose a different direction afterwards for health reasons, while guitarist John Stowell , bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop continued as a trio and released several CDs. It sounds like a pleasant reunion in the studio at the beginning of 2020, where respect for tradition was the binding agent.
Exuberant deviations are not the order of the day, but a satisfying and enthusiastic creation of an extremely stylish club atmosphere. Those who are not looking for the latest hype and not only swear by extreme improvisation will enjoy this. In any case for fans of cool jazz.
