CD Reviews

This album is amazing.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Never have I heard such original versions of Hancock's music. This album is all worth the insane version of Chameleon. Also, being a drummer myself, I'd heavily recomend this album for a "music-drums" tape. It allows a lot of space for a drumer to fit in, and you can't NOT have fun with the song "Sly" after, god willing, you figure it out. (9/8, 7/16, 3/4.)"
May be the best recording I've heard this year!

"Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect with such a strange combination
as bass, guitar, and trumpet, but after one listen I was floored!
What an incredible interpretation of Hancock's work! It's one thing to have three of the top jazz musicians in the world playing together, but then to also have them playing with such inspiration, mastery, and cohesion (in a rather unorthodox setting)...what more can a listenter ask for? Drums? Piano? Not needed. Whitfield, McBride, and Payton have all the rhythms and melodies taken care of in a unique and fresh way. Normally I wait 1 year to review a cd, but this was like discovering gold that had already been excavated and polished."

"I bought this CD for two reasons, Herbie Hanock and Nicholas Payton. Hancock's music has been done a zillion different ways by a zillion diffrent people but Peyton, McBride and Whitfield do Herbie's music proud. Imagine some of Herbie's best compositions unplugged with just a bass, guitar and trumpet. It's like hearing the music again for the first time. Their version of the classic 'Chameleon' is brilliant and is darn near better than the original."
