From the very first bars of the title track of the CD New York Slick, you get a hint that this is going to be a real slick jazz journey. It swings you right down in your listener chair, unable to get up before the last bars of final track fades out. The title track begins with a nice horn-introduction, before the drums and bass gets in and sets a real swing to the tune. Just as you have enjoyed the solos, you lean back with A Slight Smile. So charming, so relaxing! The piano-ornaments run down your spine. Because of the handling of the instruments in Tierra Espanola, you suddenly feel you're moved to foreign country. Right into the heat, you can actually taste the Spanish soil, aspiring to a sip of red wine. It's just so Aromatic; the following track, where the piano-intro leads you into a nice swinging flute-solo, accompanied by the rest of the band. This track is really cool, and tight. Many are those who get a kick on "Route 66". I don't! I get a kick on Alternate Route! It starts out nice and easy with an excellent piano- and bass-intro, so delicious. But watch out! Soon you find yourself stomping your feet to a heavy trombone-solo. After a while Hubert Laws sneaks in with his flute. From here it accelerates into a swirling route. You find yourself constantly attached to that flute. It runs up and down, in and out, all around. All the time followed by the bass, accentuated by the piano and constantly haunted by the whirling drums of Billy Cobham. It is just the most beautiful and forceful flute-solos ever played. So smooth, so daring, so challenging. Ron Carters bass-solo sums up all the solos in a distinct way. Fast and smoothly he runs over the neck of the bass. Man, can Ron get some sounds out of a set of strings. Together they all whip up the mood to incredible heights.Read more ›

Great album, perfect for popping in on a quiet Sunday morning and reading the paper or making omelets. Definitely worth adding to your collection.
