Fans of pop-jazz supergroup Kilauea have been licking their lips over the long anticipated release of Greg Vail's opening solo statement E-Motion, and the charismatic multi-saxman does everything musically possible to fulfill their fantasies. Infusing the same type of frenetic energy and silky passion as in his live and recorded performances with the band, Vail keeps his ideas melodically simple while venturing into enough edgy impovisational territory that will keep obvious comparisons at bay.
