Overview

The 1992 edition of Elements is much more interesting than the original version. Co-leaders and founders bassist Mark Egan and drummer Danny Gottlieb were clearly challenged by the playing of keyboardist Gil Goldstein and David Mann on soprano. The drum machines were gone and this live set finds the group really stretching out on five Egan originals. There are periods of meandering but most of the music is purposeful, it consistently grooves, and Mann's soprano adds a lot of fire to the performances, even to the ballad "Amazon Beauty." This is an excellent effort by a colorful fusion/post-bop band.
