Album Review

One of many fine outings by Harold Danko for Steeplechase, this quartet session is a bit different from most of his CDs for the label, as he mostly focuses on revisiting his older compositions. With the solid tenor saxophonist Rich Perry, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Jeff Hirschfield rounding out this talented group, the pianist explores songs written during several different decades. His richly textured tribute "Wayne Shorter" is an excellent portrait featuring Perry, while the turbulent descending line of "McCoy's Passion" captures the energy of McCoy Tyner perfectly.

The one new song making its debut is the quirky "Personal Cornucopia," which alternates between its complex theme and soft, introspective passages for the rhythm section.
