Drawing from Melvin Van Peebles as much as Ray Brown, this is almost audio verite jazz having the kind of mixed media presence that shows this cat didn’t grow up in a bubble. Certainly a solid pit stop for left leaning tastes, this set is that kind of different set that really grabs hold. Maybe not for everyone, but those in the know will know. ”
