Most widely known as a first call sideman with the likes of the late Michael Brecker and Chris Potter, guitarist Adam Rogers is himself a composer of note, as he's documented on four prior Criss Cross recordings.
On his fifth outing for the label, Rogers offers a crackling set of standards in triologue with world-class partners John Patitucci and Clarence Penn, placing his formidable technique at the service of musical imperatives and swinging all the way.
