Album Review

Walt Weiskopf follows up the lush nonet sounds of Siren with a streamlined, hard-hitting quartet statement. Joining the ultra-chopsy but lyrical tenor saxophonist in a somewhat rare sideman appearance is pianist Brad Mehldau, with John Patitucci and Clarence Penn in the rhythm section.

Weiskopf and Mehldau close the album with a beautiful duet called "When Your Lips Meet Mine" and are both heard to great advantage on the two non-originals, Shwartz & Dietz's "Haunted Heart" and Jule Styne's "People." ~ David R.
