Synopsis

Amazon.com
Though led by the estimable talents of saxist Kenny Garrett and bassist Charnett Moffett, II is really the story of a father and son. So while it's hard to deny a horn blower the likes of Garrett, this show belongs to the Moffett boys--the aforementioned Charnett and his father, the late Charles Moffett. The elder Moffett earned his stripes with Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, and Sonny Rollins and on this outing, his stickwork is locked-down tight. By being everywhere at once (and high in the mix), Moffett opens lanes and blazes trails for the rest of the band. And while those trails may not be very far afield, the terrain they do explore here is remarkably well covered. Added and abetted by a terrific, exciting performance by Cyrus Chestnut on keys, The General Music Project make complex, swinging postbop jazz that is both skillfully rendered and easy to enjoy. --S.
