Overview

Ted Nash wrote all eight selections for this release, and although none of his originals are that memorable by themselves, the playing is consistently high quality. Four of the eight selections team him with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis (who takes a particularly hot solo on "The Shooting Star"), while the others have Marcus Printup in Marsalis' place. The quintet performances are excellent, with drummer Matt Wilson sometimes sounding a bit like Ed Blackwell, bassist Ben Allison being stimulating in support, and pianist Frank Kimbrough taking several fine solos. Although Nash's post-bop date would have been improved if the material were more distinctive (perhaps including a few standards), the musicians are all in fine form.
