Overview

Prominent jazz vibraphonists have always been relatively few and Warren Wolf has the potential to be one of the top players of his generation. Wolf is joined by bassist Christian McBride, pianist Peter Martin, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson, with guest appearances by trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and saxophonist Tim Green. Wolf is a master of lyricism and restraint with his spacious interpretation of Johnny Mandel's timeless ballad "Emily." He doubles on vibes and marimba in an intricate interpretation of Chick Corea's "Señor Mouse." Six of the songs are originals by the leader. The composer takes a back seat in the sensual "Natural Beauties," showcasing Martin and Green (the latter on soprano sax) first before adding his dazzling solo. Pelt and Green (on alto sax) are added for the hard-charging post-bop vehicle "Sweet Bread," a performance with plenty of fireworks. The brilliant Christian McBride introduces the rapid-fire "One for Lenny," where Wolf shows his chops at a blazing tempo, followed by potent solos from Green and Martin, along with a fiery arco solo by the bassist and a brief break by Hutchinson. Martin contributed the warm ballad "Intimate Dance," a lyrical duet with the leader. Previously recorded by a Japanese label, Warren Wolf's impressive debut for Mack Avenue should open lots of doors for the talented vibraphonist.
