Album Review

The trio of Craig Handy (on tenor and soprano), bassist Charles Fambrough, and drummer Ralph Peterson lives up to its potential during a wide-ranging set. The improvisations are explorative yet melodic and logical, while the interplay between these talented players is consistently impressive. Together they explore tributes to Clifford Jordan and George Adams and at times hint at Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and even Grover Washington, Jr.. Pianist David Kikoski is heard on four selections, but his presence is actually unnecessary. Handy's unaccompanied solo on "West Bank: Beyond the Berlin Wall" is a highlight of this recommended disc.

Customer Reviews

Lost classic

Don't miss this one, jazz fans. Smoking from the first note. It has been 18 years since this was released but it is just as potent and relevant as anything being recorded today. Craig Handy has his own sound, not another Trane or Brecker clone. And it is a big, beautiful, bold tone. Add the brilliant, creative voices of Charles Fambrough and Ralph Peterson Jr and it is a smoking hot stew.
