Album Review

The liner notes to this well played date, which featured two powerful LA straight-ahead jazz trios, goes just a bit overboard in comparing Forman's multiple styles and traditions to the scattered influences of Picasso. And of course, mentioning Jackson Pollock and Claude Monet is unnecessary, because the music must speak for itself. But if you're looking for impressionism with your traditional jazz, this CD might just be the ticket. Forman eschews smooth jazz, but with bassist Dave Carpenter and Joel Taylor sounds a bit like a slightly more aggressive version of David Benoit on the plucky and melodic title track.

Patience might require just that for fans of more middle of the road piano jazz. But for those who like real adventure and unexpected rhythmic curves, it's very interesting.
