CD Reviews

Excellent, sometimes moving
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since John Patitucci moved to New York, he has been playing with some local killer players. This album is another outstanding result coming out of New York. With Michael Brecker, Chris Potter, John Scofield and Bill Stewart on board, this CD cooks. Check it out!"
A super session!

John Patitucci shines with refulgent brightness in this album that would seem to be inspired in retrospective mood. The memories of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman or Charles Mingus are suggested and underlined. Since his fabulous rapport with Chick Corea, his progresses and goals have experimented an exponential increase.

In this sense this CD is a febrile renovation, a smart reinvention of idiomatic scents of classic Jazz, expressed with freshness and sumptuous musicality.

Excellent and distinction are the essential features thatcharacterize this album.

"This is another one of those CDs that features guest artistes that are all favourites of mine. Released ten years ago, bassist Patitucci is joined by Michael Brecker and Chris Potter - both on tenor saxophone - along with John Scofield on guitar and Bill Stewart on drums. I remember it being years before I could tell where Brecker was playing as opposed to where Potter was - a huge achievement for Potter considering how relatively new on the scene he was back in 1998.

John Scofield for his part, is simply dazzling.

For my money, "Out Of The Mouth Of Babes" is my all-time favourite track but this is no one-track album. Every single tune is eminently enjoyable. I was playing it earlier today and still got a huge buzz from it. Eight of the ten tunes are Patitucci originals with McCoy Tyner's "Search For Peace" and John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" being the other two. Patitucci also produced the album.

On the back cover, Larry Blumfeld, then editor-in-chief at "Jazziz" magazine writes (in an exceprt from his inner-sleeve notes): "... Paticucci - a bassist forever associated with Chick Corea's electric success - is thinking more clearly than ever about John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman as he creates his own music." I think that sums this CD up really nicely. If you like any of the names I've mentioned here, this is definitely worth checking out."
