Overview

Bob Boguslaw is a musician who wears many hats. At the time of this recording session, he was active in the United States Marine Band and also worked with symphony orchestras, in the orchestras' accompanying touring musical companies, as well as playing pop and jazz. But this studio date is a gathering of old friends (including drummer Frank Russo and saxophonist Pete BarenBregge) concentrating primarily on the leader's compositions. "Snake Bit" is a funky opener that showcases an extended solo by bassist Aaron Clay. The Cuban flavor of his challenging "Do the Math" prominently features Russo and percussionist Chris Rose, though it is the leader's inventive solo section that serves as its focal point. "Gabrielle's Hand" is a gorgeous ballad that reflects on his daughter's transformation from childhood to becoming a young adult. Boguslaw has a bit of fun disguising the introduction to Cole Porter's "You Be So Nice to Come Home To," giving it a wistful air and playing it at a far slower tempo than most jazz musicians. Simon & Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair" can be a dreadful bore in the wrong hands, but the pianist's scoring of it adds a few twists and is highlighted by BarenBregge's playful soprano sax.
