Just getting into some of the recent SC Gregory Tardy albums. Talented, individual, soulful player.

This is an excellent debut recording. At first I thought Riley was simply copping Gonsalves and Webster, but no. He puts his own spin on the breathy tenor approach. And I usually don't care for the obligatory soprano double on a few tunes, but this album slapped me straight. I've never quite heard soprano playing like this, where Riley's soprano almost sounds like a C-melody saxophone. Bizarre, and really nice. (There's also one tune with alto clarinet.)

Riley is good -- at one point Derek Taylor made me a comp of Riley cuts and it's quite strong. Probably from among his first few Steeplechases; it's been a while so I've forgotten what was from where.
