Album Review

Since producer Norman Granz sold Pablo in the mid-'80s, regular recordings of jam sessions by any one label have been infrequent. One happy exception has been the European-based Steeplechase, which has regularly gathered musicians together to play off one another's strengths. This volume features trumpeters Ryan Kisor and Brad Goode with veteran John McNeil, accompanied by Andy LaVerne (practically a house pianist for the label), bassist Steve LaSpina and drummer Matt Wilson, the latter one of the most in-demand drummers of his generation.

The jam session is still quite a viable project, especially when players of such high caliber are gathered together with the tapes rolling.
