McNeely, Jim Tentet ?GROUP THERAPY? [Omnitone]

David Richoux   1/16/2006   CD, Jazz

Fluid and multi-textural NYC ensemble creating a very full soundbank of support for well thought-out solos Fast, slow and moderate tempos (sometimes in the same piece) without too much squonk makes for a very musically enjoyable recording. I like the balance between the brass and reeds – no section dominates and they all have something to say here (while the rhythm section keeps things rolling, just like they are supposed to!) Tom Varner on French Horn adds a lot to the mix. Year 2000 recording. Dave Richoux
