Hard Bop/Post Bop. Cathexis records has released two collections of crashing, banging, squealing Hard/Post Bop Jazz. Bassist Scott Lee and Drummer Jeff Williams lead quartet and quintet combos respectively. This is music that owes much to and extends the language created by Miles Davis’ ‘60s quintet. The music on both is thoughtful and controlled without ever being boring or contrived. Percussion is the name of the game and it is fine through out. Music like this displays the importance of Tony Williams. Superbly conceived and recorded.

Track Listing (With Ease):In the Brightness; Blue eyes; With Ease; Solo Bass for Andy Stalman; Night Suite; B&S Duet; Balladina We’re tired and We’re Out of Here. (Total Playing Time 58:23).
