Album Review

Although the Eastern Rebellion name is not used on this release, the personnel of the quintet (pianist Cedar Walton, tenor saxophonist Bob Berg, trombonist Curtis Fuller, bassist David Williams and drummer Billy Higgins) is the same as the mid-'80s version of that hard bop group. Their live set (recorded in Bologna, Italy) features the band performing four Walton originals (including "Cedar's Blues" and "Ugestu") plus "Over the Rainbow." The results may not be unique but the solos of Walton, Berg and Fuller are consistently satisfying, making this date easily recommended to hard bop collectors.
