An outstanding collection,
This review is from: Jazz Warrior (Audio CD)
Wilson can do no wrong, he performs with a stunning and soulful ease and brings the feel of a raptuous show to this album. Departing from the current obsession with "jazz-pop," everything found on here is eclectic and engaging not pausing for Jamie Cullum fans to adjust to music with meaning and real emotions. Abram fires off biting statements on racial tension coupled with the most compulsive melodies with a totally slick delivery. If anything about this album doesn't gel with me it is the slickness, songs that went to all new realms of coolness in the live show actually fade out on the record, only to leave me begging for more! I wish it could have been a double CD to reflect Wilson's inventive spirit and the obvious enthusiasm of the band. Maybe a live CD is in order?
