Album Review

Jerry Bergonzi's third Double-Time release again features the potent backing of organist Dan Wall and drummer Adam Nussbaum (both members of John Abercrombie's mid-'90s trio). After kicking off with a 7/4 rendition of "Just in Time," the trio tackles seven crafty originals. Bergonzi slams like a hurricane, particularly on "A Different Look" and "Channeling." (The latter, based on "Alone Together," fades after nine minutes or so, suggesting that the take went on for quite a while.) This fiery and advanced post-Coltrane tenor can do more than just burn, however, as "Wiggy," a marvelous mid-tempo piece, and "Committed," an inspired ballad, make clear. Highly recommended. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi
