Grant Stewart's third Criss Cross date as a leader features the spirited interplay between the tenor saxophonist and his longtime band mate, guitarist Joe Cohn. Stewart's brawny, expressive solos contrast nicely with Cohn's fleet yet temperate lines.
Supported by an active rhythm section, including star pianist Bill Charlap, bassist Paul Gill, and drummer Willie Jones III, Stewart and Cohn burn through a program of standards, plus an original composition by Cohn's father, jazz great Al Cohn.
