Prolific trumpet maestro returns with his working quintet (for live performances) on this fine straight ahead Post Bop set. There is a unity about the ensemble work that reflects that understanding and also that many of these pieces form part of the band’s live repertoire. Cedar Walton’s ‘I’m Not So Sure’ is given a forceful interpretation and ‘Strasbourg/ St Denis’ is a joyous upbeat piece. The wistful ‘Starmaker’ has a ‘Canteloupe Island’ feel to it albeit slightly slower. ‘Mr Clean’ is given a slightly staccato twist and ‘To Wisdom The Prize’ is a beautiful and delicate piece.
