Jay Hoggard is a vibes player who shows a strong affinity for both Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson. His use of the pedal gives him a very warm, dream-like sound - his unaccompanied version of MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE is a good example of that. But he can swing hard, too, as on STARTING OVER, a Bobby Hutcherson tune that also features drummer Yoron Israel. SWEET POTATO is right out of the church, and the group plays a very relaxed STOMPIN' AT THE SAVOY. Guitarist Kenny Burrell plays well on Monk's EPISTROPHY. The only misstep for me is the title track, which is much "freer" than the others and has a strong Ornette Coleman flavor to it. Other than that, it's an excellent CD."
