Overview

A Time for the Soul

One of the most in-demand of contemporary jazz drummers, Winard Harper has assembled a fine ensemble of his own for the solid A Time for Soul. He’s also a smart enough leader to know that a drummer can’t monopolize a session, no matter how virtuosic that musician may be. So Harper allots plenty of space to his partners in swing: trumpeter Patrick Rickman, saxophonist Brian Horton, pianist Jeb Patton, bassist Ameen Saleem, and percussionist Kevin Jones. Harper’s focus is sleek hard bop, and he and the young band take to it as if it were second nature. (Hear their spirited take on the Bobby Timmons classic “Dat Dere.”) Harper and Rickman contribute strong originals, and the album finds room for lesser-heard numbers by George Cables and Rueben Brown, as well as the standard “Alone Together," which is treated as a feature for piano trio. Of special interest is Harper’s “All Praise to G-d,” which employs yet another percussionist (Scott Harper) for evocative effect.
