Album Review

This session, led by Danish pianist Ben Besiakov, boasts a killer lineup: Jens Winther on trumpet, George Garzone on tenor, Ray Drummond on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. The title track and the lengthy "Square Time," both co-written by Besiakov and Winther, are the most abstract and adventurous cuts. (The latter could be the love child of Herbie Hancock's "Little One" and Wayne Shorter's "Sanctuary.") Winther's "That's the Way," in contrast, starts the session swinging hard and in the pocket, and Besiakov's "Blues on the Square" (a slow-and-steady riposte to McCoy Tyner's "Blues on the Corner") wraps up the disc in similarly straight-ahead fashion. Garzone and Winther take turns laying out: "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" features the tenor, "Body and Soul" and "Aviation" feature the trumpet, and Carlos Lyra's "Você e Eu" ("You and I") finds Besiakov in a trio setting. When the whole band unites, as on "Square Time," the going gets mighty serious. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

Lærte at flyve mens denne plade spillede. Han må vide hvad han laver...;-)
