What I find interesting is how Alphonse incorporates his own unique style of drumming into these selections. For example listen to Protocol, and at once you are hypnotized by the way Alphonse compliments the arrangement without getting in the way. Ernie Watts takes a wonderful solo, as well. Ernie is one of the busiest men on the scene today. This is one of my favorite recordings from 1996. You should also check out the other recordings released on Tenacious Records. Guaranteed you will not be disappointed.
