Listen to ole "p21168035335454"
There's some killer post-bop jazz on this, back to the late '50s-early '60s, aggressive music-making, as well as heartfelt smooth numbers (My Ship) to heal the lovesick soul. Inspired, delightfully hard-driving music, not for sissies!
Strongly recommended.

This is an excellent album for fans of straight-ahead jazz. Recorded live in Toronto in 2001, this outing does more than celebrate the legacies of Miles Davis and John Coltrane. It could equally be said that this album lays a foundation for the next generation of jazz players. It looks forward at least as much as it looks back, and transcends the role of a strictly retrospective homage. Herbie Hancock was selected by Miles Davis in the 1960s to become the man on piano for several years of Miles' quintet career. And although the late Michael Brecker unquestionably had his own incomparable style, it is not unfair to consider him to be the very embodiment of "John Coltrane 2.0." Roy Hargove's playing was unknown to me prior to hearing this album, but he clearly possesses the talent to keep up with these stellar performers. At the time of this writing, this album carries a 3.0 average rating from Multnomah County Library users. That's a crime. This is unmistakably a five-star listening experience.
