Album Review

Because he is based in Chicago, Brad Goode has been underpublicized, but in reality he is a great bebop trumpeter. On this set, he is teamed with a top-notch Chicago rhythm section led by the underrated pianist Jodie Christian, and the very talented Ira Sullivan, who doubles on soprano and muted trumpet. The pairing of two trumpets on Raymond Scott's "Toy Trumpet" and "Make Someone Happy" works quite well, as does the blend between Goode's trumpet and Sullivan's soprano on the other selections.

Other highlights include "You and the Night and the Music," John Coltrane's "Resolution," and "Alone Together," but all nine selections are well worth hearing. This is a superior modern straight-ahead jazz set.
