Always good to see the kids all growed up and doing well. I first heard Ambrose Akinmusire over a decade ago, on stage with Steve Coleman on the South Bank. He had a fiery style and came over as clearly self-assured on stage despite, or perhaps because of, his youth. Since then I've seen his name checked by Joni Mitchell - praise indeed - in Michelle Mercer's Will You Take Me As I Am, and this set confirms the potential with a solid collection of virtuoso pieces, with Akinmusire backed by an excellent team of musicians.

The opener, Confessions To My Unborn Daughter, enters gently with just Akinmusire playing solo. The next phase, as the rest of the band join in, is marked by rapid arpeggios on the trumpet and Walter Smith's tenor sax. Later on Smith's sax has a Coltrane-esque sound about it.

Co-producer Jason Moran contributes some nice Fender Rhodes on track 4, Henya, which also features some interesting glissandi from the trumpet, a device Akinmusire also uses well at the beginning of track 7, Regret, a duo also featuring a graceful piano accompaniment from Gerald Clayton. There's also some standout piano from Clayton on the previous track, With Love, underpinned by some rumbling and crackling drum and cymbal work from Justin Brown. Brown's own prowess is well demonstrated on My Name Is Oscar, which is mostly him, apart from the leader intoning the occasional word or phrase, which reminded me a little of Ginsberg or a Dada poem.

I recently saw this artist in concert which prompted me to buy the album. I've sometimes been disappointed by the recordings of American jazz artists who have been brilliant live but have seemed over-produced on CD. In short, this is a great album.

Ambrose Akinmusire has an orginal style. He has been compared to Miles Davis elsewhere, although his phrasing reminded me of the free jazz trumpeter Don Cherry. A lot of space is given to the sidemen here and the interaction between sax and trumpet is particularly good. These compositions are carefully paced and each musician seems to develop the ideas of the others, rather than competing against each other. Highly recommended.

Virtuoso trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire previously played with saxophonist Steve Coleman and has now recorded this beautiful album for BLUE NOTE co-produced by pianist Jason Moran.
The remaining personnel includes Walter Smith III(ten); Gerald Clayton(p); Harish Ragharan(bs); Justin Brown(d) & Daniel Sadownick(perc).
This subtle, melancholy music is reminiscent of Miles Davis although Akinmusire claims to be influenced by the little-known trumpeter Ron Miles and also Booker Little.
Ambrose Akinmusire is not exactly a household name at present but this magnificent CD should bring his music to a wider audience.

Oh what a treat! Hauntingly beautiful refrains, powerfully original compositions - at times this music affects me in the same way as Kenny Wheeler's 'Angel Song' or Ralph Towner/Paolo Fresu's 'Chiaroscuro'. But it's much more gutsy and multi-faceted than those particular soundscapes; in fact I'd go so far as to say it encompasses all the many elements of the great tradition we call jazz: innovation, surprise, humour, abstraction, virtuosity, collectivism, and great, great humanity.... simply masterful. Saw him in Paris this last summer - the band was on fire! Go for it....
