Album Review

Prominent jazz vibraphonists have always been relatively few and Warren Wolf has the potential to be one of the top players of his generation. Wolf is joined by bassist Christian McBride, pianist Peter Martin, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson, with guest appearances by trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and saxophonist Tim Green. Wolf is a master of lyricism and restraint with his spacious interpretation of Johnny Mandel's timeless ballad "Emily." He doubles on vibes and marimba in an intricate interpretation of Chick Corea's "Señor Mouse." Six of the songs are originals by the leader. The composer takes a back seat in the sensual "Natural Beauties," showcasing Martin and Green (the latter on soprano sax) first before adding his dazzling solo. Pelt and Green (on alto sax) are added for the hard-charging post-bop vehicle "Sweet Bread," a performance with plenty of fireworks. The brilliant Christian McBride introduces the rapid-fire "One for Lenny," where Wolf shows his chops at a blazing tempo, followed by potent solos from Green and Martin, along with a fiery arco solo by the bassist and a brief break by Hutchinson. Martin contributed the warm ballad "Intimate Dance," a lyrical duet with the leader. Previously recorded by a Japanese label, Warren Wolf's impressive debut for Mack Avenue should open lots of doors for the talented vibraphonist.

Mega Talent

Warren is one of the most talented (and nicest) guys on the music scene today. Great little story: at An Die Musik in Baltimore last year, with special guest Christian McBride, Warren took the stage, sat at the drum kit, introduced the drummer while playing, the drummer took his place, Warren sat at the piano and introduced the pianist while playing, the pianist took his place, Warren picked up the bass and introduced Christian while playing. Christian took the stage at the vibes and played the first number with the band while Warren played the bass. Best introduction of a band I've ever seen.

Warren Wolf is killin'!

Slammin'! Warren Wolf is the greatest vibes player since Bobby Hutcherson! Tim Green is amazing! I rate this record six stars out of a possible five . . . .
