Joe, the son of legendary saxophonist Al Cohn,
is widely regarded as one of the finest jazz guitarists of our era -
melodically quick-witted, harmonically advanced, relentlessly swinging.
His recent work with Harry Allen, Jay Leonhart, Buddy DeFranco and
countless others has that timeless invigorating quality that marks jazz
at its very best.
a marvellous collection of standards, classic bebop, cool jazz rarities
and originals, only strengthens the case for Joe Cohn as a guaranteed
pleasure, a leader in the field.
Featuring Peter Beets on piano throughout,
the disc also highlights the strengths of two different rhythm sections:
J.J. Wiggins and Joost van Schaik alternate
with Peter Washington and Willie Jones III
on bass and drums, respectively.
