GREAT band, cool record. Monder plays his A-- off (again) and sounds like he's having a ball. Ted Poor, with this record, along with Mike Moreno's "Another Way" from last year (get this, it's tremendous), has become my favorite young drummer. There is nothing he does not do extremely well, from swinging hard with brushes in waltz time to rocking out at full blast to playing fascinating little sonic nuggets during the rubato sections of a couple of tunes. Huge talent. And I think Sabbagh's genius is in writing pieces with simple melodies but with chord structures that lend themselves really nicely to improvised soloing. In other words, he knows what he is doing, and has the right band to pull it off effectively.

I came upon this album from a search for guitarist Ben Monder, who is fast becoming one of my favorite modern players. What a gem of an album. Jerome Sabbagh writes diverse 21th century world music blending bebop and progressive post bop jazz with rock influences. He has a warm tone on sax, and though he is not a flashy player, his solos are both complex and melodic. In Ben Monder he has found the perfect partner. Monder's unique style of comping which ranges from gentle fingerpicking to complex chord voicings, sketches each tune out and perfectly complements Sabbagh's melodies and solos. As a soloist, Monder can go from the Metheny like post bop to searing fuzz solos and lightening fast passages that often end on a outside note that you would never expect to fit, but does so perfectly.

Love this CD. Really fresh and interesting jazz, not unconnected to the history of the greats, the standards, the classics, but with elements they didn't use. Surprising shifts from major to minor, out there jazz progressions butted up right against familiar, almost cliche changes, intentionally it seems. Really nice sax tones and great guitar player. Innovate band all around, great if you like the greats of the 50s and 60s but want to hear what happens after that. This feels like it's on to something. Not boring. Not masturbating. Just some nice glimmers of new things emerging.
