Fiona's Comments

Wonderful straight-ahead tune. Nice drive to the piece, but not as the expense of delicacy. Should appeal to Hard Bop and Modern Jazz fans alike. Real nice stuff.

About the Album

Reassembling the stellar quintet from his classic 1978 recording "Free Fall" and his 2010 Origin release "Live At Sweet Rhythm," pianist and composer Richard Sussman honors the unique musical chemistry of the group with a new program of mostly original compositions along with classics, "Alone Together" and "Theme for Ernie." With the exception of trumpeter Randy Brecker replacing Tom Harrell in the line-up, Sussman returns with saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi, bassist Mike Richmond and drummer Jeff Williams, along with an appearance by special guest, guitarist Mike Stern.
