Overview

Jerry Gonzalez's Fort Apache Band on this 1994 release somewhat de-emphasizes the Latin side of its music in favor of swinging hard bop. Jerry Gonzalez mostly plays trumpet, and there are not as many percussion interludes as usual. With the recent death of Carter Jefferson, the tenor spot was filled by John Stubblefield. Otherwise the personnel (with Gonzalez doubling on trumpet and congas, altoist Joe Ford, pianist Larry Willis, bassist Andy Gonzalez, and drummer Steve Berrios) remained the same. The music includes Ford's "Thelingus" (dedicated to Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Duke Ellington), an adaptation of "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel," Cal Tjader's "Viva Cepeda," and Jackie McLean's "Fort Apache" among the more memorable selections.
