How do you rate a jazz album? Is it about strength and depth of improvisation--"the sound of surprise," as the late, great journalist Whitney Balliet might say? Is it about structural intricacy, harmonic integrity, rhythmic feel, and melodic communication? Or is it musical ingenuity and individual personalities at play that help to make or break a record? In truth, all of those ideas can factor into the equation, and Peace In Time does well by all of those metrics.
