Classy stuff throughout, all of it blending into a style
No surprise that the very talented pianist Markowitz would produce this disc, considering his history backing another soprano sax man, Dave Liebman. He and Niwa strike a perfect balance on cuts like "Catherine," with the latter's very dry sax countered by the lower-register romanticism of the pianist. The title cut is a quirky composition appropriately dedicated to postfusionists John Scofield and Jaco Pastorius, among others. Marino and Wilson hold their own with hard-core rhythm work that takes the high road rather than pounding out the expected plunk-plunking, creating a mood quite the opposite of "Epilogue," a fine bossa nova influenced ballad. Classy stuff throughout, all of it blending into a style you'll find damned hard to categorize under the usual stylistic categories.
