Stockholm Syndrome is...
Another success from a leading star in the current jazz sky. This is a well-thought-out and executed set of originals and choice standards from a crew of young all-stars. Vinson's alto is superb and his soprano work is lyrical and moving. Lund is the guitarist's guitarist and Scott's cymbals shimmer and dance throguhout each composition. Criss-Cross is fast becoming the Blue Note of the 2000s; bringing together the best young voices in the music. These guys and their peers evoke that same sense of community that once existed in jazz. Pick-up any album by any of these guys and you will see that the torch has been passed and is burning brightly into the future.
I didn't expect it before listening, but this album has become quickly one of my favorites. The group's chemistry is great and the compositions are captivating. If you are a fan of any of the musicians in this amazing line-up, I'm sure you will find some joy from this album.
