5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction guaranteed!!, 19 Jan 2014

This review is from: Times Square (Audio CD)
I have a great love of music from Blues, Rock( Classic and Prog ) and of course Jazz. In my collection I have a number of Gary's CDs and to me three standout viz. Like Minds, Real Live Hits and Times Square. Of the three the TS album just edges ahead- there's a synergy in the music making, a togetherness and yet a freedom that lets the music flow easily. I must also mention the recording and production- pristine and perfectly pitched, which connects,in an intimate and focused way, the music to the listener.
Drummer Roy Haynes gets things going with the first track. It's like a drum attack-you feel like you've been caught by the shirt collars and shaken about. Gary and Tiger soon join in, making magical sound, underpinned by Steve's growling yet "fleet of foot" bass. After the "white knuckle ride" of the first track sink yourself deep into the couch and rest your head back as Coral the 2nd track takes the pace right down. Close your eyes and be transported "someplace else". The 3rd track showcases Tiger on the trumpet- the playing edgy,raw but beautiful. I just love it! It's swing time with Peau Douce the next track. Won't be surprised if you get off the sofa and got those hips swinging! The next two tracks Midnight and Radio add nicely to the CD. Track 6, True or False showcases Roy's drumming skill and prowess. The Latin flavoured final track Como En Vietnam is a fitting end to this wonderfully enjoyable music experience.
This is one of my top ten discs, taking in all genres of music. Why? Well I've had this Cd for over 15 years now and I play it regularly and I'm sure I will do so for the next 15,20 years. It has that enduring quality about it. Strongly recommended to all music lovers.
