A great "Rhyne quintet"

"I think I have become addicted to Rhynes playing. What a great quintet he has gathered for this recording. I like the way Mel Rhyne swings on the second and fourth beat... it s cool.Rhyne has become surprisingly "bluesy" nowadays compared to when he played with Wes in the sixties. Eric Alexander take some real nice solos on this CD... he reminds me somewhat of Stanley Turrentine,, perhaps not as fat tone,, but still.....Ryan Kisor plays very much in the "bebop tradition" but he does it very good. at times your can hear quite heavy influences from Clifford Brown, particularly on the track "Wail" written by Bud Powell. check out Bernsteins solo here as well. This was already one of my favourite records from the very first time I heard it. On the whole a very enjoyable record."
