Drop the needle anywhere on this limited-edition, Record Store Day Black Friday vinyl from Zev Feldman and saxophonist Cory Weeds Reel to Real label (the digital equivalent drops in December) and it's a time machine back to a purer time when all you needed was an old stage and five guys blowing to make any city night bright with magic. Coleman cuts and runs loose like a fevered wizard on a hot bed spin through "I Got Rhythm" with Moore and Dailey in mad pursuit. A joyful, unabashed swing is "Body and Soul" thanks to the unswerving though malleable muscle of White and Ridley. Coleman's deep blue tone and heated, real time acrobatics spark and ignite a set of constant bop shenanigans throughout "Afternoon In Paris," "Sandu" and the reckless happiness of "Joy Spring." Put this one on and revel in a time before all this.
Side One: Afternoon In Paris; Sandu.
Side Two: I Got Rhythm; Body And Soul; Joy Spring.
