Album Review

Danny Heines' third effort for Silver Wave might be his most interesting yet, humming along nicely on a lighthearted, contemporary jazz vibe. For this outing, the guitarist is again joined by oboist and sax man Paul McCandless, as well as crack session bassist Michael Manring and percussionist William Kennedy.
