Why do I like mainstream jazz so much? THIS is why!

"I caught a song from "Road Tested" on a radio program called "Jazz Showcase" late one Sunday night, although I didn't know who it was at the time and had to go to the station's website and look it up on their playlist. They were playing a standard, "Caravan", but something about the ferociously energetic and soulful way this quartet tore into that old standby immediately caught my attention and impressed the hell out of me. I ordered the CD from Amazon the next day. It arrived a couple days ago and hasn't been off my stereo since.
This is pure jazz musicianship at its finest. These guys just play everything as though their lives depended on it. The arrangements are lean and spare and allow each musician plenty of space to be heard and to stretch out. The recording has a nice bright uncluttered feel to it that I really enjoy, too.
Extremely enjoyable and impressive. I plan to get more Crawford and McGriff as soon as possible."
