Overview

Tenor saxophonist Carlos Garnett is in fine form on this set, which is more accessible than expected considering his roots in the avant-garde. Although Garnett is the main soloist, there are spots for pianist Carlton Holmes (who deserves to be better known), trumpeter Derrick Gardner, and trombonist Robert Trowers. The music includes a Latinized version of "Giant Steps," a credible remake of "My Favorite Things," a lyrical "Delilah," and the up-tempo modal blues "McCoy Next Block" and "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise" among the highlights. Garnett's tone may take a little getting used to, and though there are quite a few familiar tunes on this album, these versions are fresh, creative, and often full of subtle surprises.

After listening to this cd I knew that I had just heard one of the giants of jazz.I was very suprised at how this music kept me wanting it to go on and on. From the first track to the last Mr. Garnett takes us on a joyful trip with his original sound and phrashings, showing his Latin roots and his connection with the many jazz greats that have gone before. The arrangements and the use of other horns are a perfect fit. This is a great cd. Check out his treatment of ''My Favorite Things.'' Bravo Carlos!
