Given his background with Turrentine, it's not surprising how comfortable the guitarist sounds, whether exploring such typical grooves as the shuffle on his own title tune or stretching the harmonic limits on the "Giant Steps"-inspired "Super 80." Those are just two numbers in a well-programmed nine-song set six Skaff originals that gives the trio plenty of musical fuel. Skaff's notes rise up like bubbles in a glass of lager.
