40th Day (Feat. Jeremy Pelt, JD Allen)[CD]
....welcome to the world of Ozan Musluoglu ! 'Wizard Lizard' has a wonderful Grissett solo, followed by a Hubbard like solo by Mr. Pelt (nothing wrong with that !),followed by Mr. Allen on tenor. 'Coincidence' ...listen to the band dig into a modal sound ! please note the wonderful solo and the recorded sound of the bass and the energy of the drummer Darrell Green. 'Requiem for K.C.' opens with a very nice rhythm section intro serves as the essence of the arrangement.. Great unison melody from the two horns. '40th Day' is a melancholy waltz that is a 'walking ballad', a very nice musical surprise. 'Fake Promises' goes at a break-neck pace....with a very interesting piano solo that sets the standard for the tenor and trumpet solo. note the rhythm swing behind these solos. Not to be out done, Mr. Musluoglu and Mr. Green contribute their share of fire as they solo. 'Enjoy Disappointments' is a really interesting song and arrangement with the bass replacing the usual pizzicato part with the bow, then playing the melody with the horns....it's very effective !....followed by a bass pizz solo...wow !!! by the way,the melody is built on the changes to 'I'll Remember April'.. 'Panic' ends the CD with a real swinger..great rhythm section feel.. this track proves that the future of jazz is in some very capable hands!! RON CARTER.
