Album Review

Pete Mills, a tenor saxophonist inspired by his mentor Walt Weiskopf, is an excellent player influenced by but not derivative of John Coltrane. On Art and Architecture, most of the music is straight-ahead post-bop, utilizing chord changes in the themes but not necessarily always tied to them in the improvisations. Mills' dry tone is showcased at its best on the augmented blues-with-a-bridge "Dot Com," "In Walked Bud," a brief duet with guitarist Pete McCann on "Chelsea Bridge," and the lighthearted "Pumpkin Shoes." The band really gets to romp on the funky "Clubfoot" and there are fine spots along the way for McCann and pianist Bobby Floyd, with bassist Dennis Irwin and drummer Matt Wilson being stimulating in support. The program has plenty of variety in moods and grooves, and Mills fares quite well in every setting of this excellent modern jazz set.
