The quartet is up to the challenge. Adam Kolker plays tenor, soprano and bass clarinet in a modern zone, sometimes functioning as Garbarek and Dewey R did in the old Jarrett quartets, but with a personal sound, again of his own. James Cammack on acoustic and electric bass and Steve Johns on drums propel the band to swing or do the straight-eight as needed. The solos are crafted well, the originals very good, and Jeff Holmes plays some excellent piano here.
This is a pianist to watch, to hear, to look forward to again. And this album captivates.
