Synopsis

Product Description
The idea here is to update the Jazz At The Philharmonic tours and CTI All-Stars concerts by gathering a bunch of Warner Bros. contracted musicians - all of whom operate in the smooth jazz arena in the States - and turning 'em loose in various combinations. The 11-minute jam "Always There," with a crowded front line of Rick Braun, Kenny Garrett, Boney James, and Kirk Whalum clearly lit up by Larry Carlton's sharp rhythm guitar and George Duke's funky-butt clavinet comping. Garrett's smokin' rhythm section rouses his badder self on "Wayne's Thang"; and in a salute to his famous 1991 Montreux gig with Miles Davis, Garrett quotes Miles's "Jean Pierre" on the way out. In another reminder of Montreux' past, Carlton slyly invokes Eddie Harris's "It's Cold Duck Time" (from the epochal Swiss Movement) while Whalum provides the blunt edge. Fourplay does a nice job with another bit of Miles ("Four") and Kevin Mahogany gets an exciting, growling thing going in "Yesterday I Have the Blues."
