Straight, No Chaser

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Flautist Mark Weinstein made his recording debut as a leader in the late 1960s, though he left music to become a college professor, returning in the mid-'90s to record on a regular basis. This session with three veterans, guitarist Dave Stryker, bassist Ed Howard, and drummer Victor Lewis, is one of Weinstein's best efforts.

The quartet tackles several familiar jazz works, offering a lighthearted romp through Sonny Rollins' "Airegin" and a hip "Straight, No Chaser" which utilizes bass flute. The originals are strong as well. Weinstein's "Loverin'" is a rapid-fire reworking of the standard "Lover," while his "Blues for Janice" has a strong John Coltrane influence. Stryker switches to acoustic guitar for his two compositions, which include the subtle "Crianza" and the hypnotic "Shanti." Highly recommended.
