Can a 62-year-old drummer be called a neoclassicist? Who cares? This is loud, sweaty jazz, the kind of music Louis Hayes used to play with Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley in the late '50s and early '60s. This disc sounds so much like an old Jazz Messengers album you'll be looking for "recorded by Rudy Van Gelder" in the credits. Hayes kicks things off with "Progress Report," a charger featuring a torrid solo by tenor Abraham Burton and some nice cymbal work by the leader. "Clarence's Place," a piece of pure soul jazz by Freddie Hubbard, spotlights trumpeter Riley Mullins, a full-range player who's absorbed a lot of Lee Morgan and Dizzy Gillespie. Burton even has the chutzpah to reprise Eric Dolphy's unaccompanied "Tenderly," and he may just have pulled it off. Quintessential hard bop.
