I know; a bold review title and a very a bold five star rating.
However, this is probably Wilson's most clever and passionate recording yet, showcasing him as a mature musician and strong band leader. Wilson is really going back to his roots with this one and it's refreshing to hear the New Orleans born, London based trumpeter settling into native grooves and hard swinging tempos.
In his career Abram Wilson has done it all.... singing, acting, even rapping(!) but it's a joy to finally hear Abram where he's truly at home, just sitting with his horn playing some great jazz.
I could continue praising this CD, but instead I'm just going to say: Buy it, and enjoy....
