Editorial Reviews

Product Description

To any discerning listener, Louis Hayes belongs in that pantheon of great percussionists that includes the likes of Kenny Clark, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, Philly Joe Jones, and Arthur Taylor, among others.
The legendary jazz drummer, who as been putting his unique stamp on the world of jazz drumming for over 50 years, leads a wonderful band on this CD.
Features Hayes spot-on rhythm section against the swanky sax of Abraham Burton, Santi DeBriano s bass, and the retro-flavored vibes of Steve Nelson. The music is funky and full of energy, while still maintaining a classic jazz quality.


Louis Hayes swing rhythm on the cymbal was the spinal cord of the music, and he kept it going almost continuously, pushing the band ... a bullet train that wouldn t stop. --Ben Ratliff, New York Times

Hayes masterful sense of swing and polyrhythmic attack is nothing short of awe-inspiring. --Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
