Bop lives and evolves!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Jazz Warrior (Audio CD)
How refreshing it is to young jazz fans like myself to hear a young black trumpeter enthusing (via his playing) the continuing evolution of bop. Mixes in with a few Jazz-pop settings and some great soloing. To my mind the highlight is Pedal Herlin, a rhythmic hard groove which has me transfixed from start to finish. It seems to fuse hard bop with funk techniques and grooves here and there. I can't recommend this album highly enough, especially if you've ever seen Abram Wilson playing with the Soweto Kinch band. This album absolutely screams for a live tour of the UK...please Mr. Wilson, if you're reading this....
