CD Reviews

A bit too 70-ish for my taste
Nikica Gilic | Zagreb, Croatia | 09/26/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you don't think Herbie Hancock looked ridiculous in his disco phase, than you might very well enjoy this album... However, although it's not even nearly as dated (and commercially oriented) as some of the 70s recordings by some jazz artists (and former jazz artists) this is quite a disappointment for me...

Although, when I read on the back-cover of the cd that Tommy Flanagan plays various keyboards in addition to piano, that should have warned me... But this amount of brilliant musicians (Johnson, Henderson, Flanagan...) on the same album really raised my expectations, so maybe I'm a bit too harsh... The fact that album is not strictly a jazz recording doesn't necessarily mean it's not good music, but I felt a need to share my feelings, however personal they might be.

Be warned! This is a period piece, not recommendable to jazz purists."
