Milestones Posted August 21, 2022 Report Share Posted August 21, 2022 (edited) I remember seeing this come out over two decades ago; I spotted it at Borders (remember Borders?). I didn't get it then. I have it now, as I have come to appreciate the players. I was already into Abercrombie decades ago, but the others were little known to me. But now I do know Patitucci and Erskine, and I'm coming to know Mintzer. The latter is a virile player with a sound like Brecker's. These guys are serious about the gig--they play very cohesively and they are fired up. All the tunes are originals, divided democratically. Mintzer and Abercrombie provide the most striking tunes, but the others are more than solid. I really slept on this one. Go get it to hear players who work the tradition, with much of that tradition being the richness of their own legacies as players and composers.
