On Jazz Is ... tenorist Tim Warfield
convenes a group of instrumental virtuosi who have partnered him on his
three previous Criss Cross recordings.
The group, this time playing more open and free than on their previous outings,
plays with a collective simpatico and fire that can only come from a common set
of influences and years of bandstand proximity.
On trumpet Nicholas Payton,
on vibes Stefon Harris,
on piano Cyrus Chestnut,
with bassist Tarus Mateen
and drummer Clarence Penn.
