I feel happy when a hear tis album. Nice tunes, good musicians and the feeling that jazz, good jazz, not necessarily must be dark and complicate. This CD is fresh and excellent. Branford play more soprano saxophone and the new drummer is excellent. The rest of the musician are especially good. I don't know how explain, but this is less pretentious that the latest albums for Marsalis. Good direction. Jazz lovers need this kind of music. Good but easy, excellent ballads, and great themes also. A nice album to be happy listening perfect jazz. Thanks Branford.
