By D. P. Randolph on November 25, 2006
Format: Audio CD
It amazes me that I am the first to review this album. Perhaps all those who are familiar with it wrote theirs long ago. Well, this recording has a special place in my collection. A friend gave me a home recorded compilation cassette back in the mid '80s and there were a couple of songs on the tape that didn't have names. When I asked the person who taped it, he told me that he thought it was Mike Mainieri, but didn't know the album name. Seven years of trying to find this recording went by without success (remember, we didn't have Amazon in those days). One night, I was listening to the radio and heard "Crossed Wires". I called the station instantly and they told me it was from the CD "Wanderlust". I headed straight for the record shop and bought it (the only copy they had). That's how I got introduced to "Wanderlust". Now here's why I like it so much...the review.

Mike Mainieri is certainly up there with the greats like Milt Jackson, Lionel Hampton and Cal Tjader, to name a few. This album attests to that implicitly. The piano accented "Sara's Touch" moves your soul softly, the ethereal "L'Image" is reminiscent of the peacefulness of the early morning and "Pep's" is flat out sensuous. Bamboo is a bit brash with heavy overtones, but it's a killer piece. "Flying Colours" is heart a pumping tune and the sax adds, rather than detracts from this one. "Bullet Train" reminds me of Donald Fagen and Steely Dan's intricate music. As to "Wanderlust" and "Crossed Wires" there is no way I can pick a favorite, but these two are worth the price of the CD alone. The undefinable quality of these pieces (don't think for a second that the tiny sound clips you hear on this site give the the whole picture) cause me to stop, listen and be mesmerized. Yeah, the old "What CDs would you want with you on a deserted island?" is kind of kitch, but this CD would go with me...guaranteed.

Been building up a jazz cd collection the last couple years. Discovered Michael Brecker, got most of his jazz albums, then discovered he played on a wonderful jazz/fusion band Steps/Steps Ahead with Mike Mainieri, from which I discovered that Mainieri is a first rate jazz vibraphonist who hasn't gotten as wide of recognition as his peers.

Those who like jazz with a more contemporary feel, but from instrumentalists who are every bit as much of jazz virtuosos as the old masters of the mid 20th century, I think are liable to find Mainieri's music to their liking.

I have only listened to the album once so far. Wanderlust, the last song, is an absolutely gorgeous solo piece by Mainieri on the vibes.

I didn't even realize when I bought this CD that Michael Brecker is on it as well. And Don Grolnick on piano and Peter Erskine on drums. I believe those folks were on much if not all of the Steps/Ahead albums. They are fine jazz musicians.

Since I struck gold with my first album (this one) by Mainieri, I think I will continue to dip into this well.

I had this on a record album when it first came out around 1981. This is an incredible recording with great arrangements that I never get tired of listening to. I really think that this is one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. But nobody has ever heard of it. It is basically an unknown gem in the world of jazz that features Mike Brecker in his prime and a host of other great musicians. It really sounds as fresh today as it did when I was a kid in high school.
