There are 9 songs on the CD. An excellent example of how fine solo work combines to form a tight harmonic whole is found with the complex "Prelude" and serves as a showcase piece for all the musicians. "For Now" is a jazz piece that will capture the jazz listening audience with its bold innovations and style. Among the songs are "Line," "J Cess"," "Three For Mr. Evans," and "Second Line."
Each musician is a fine jazz performer. Bob Sykes has a fine piano style, full of verve and grace. Joshua Bayer is a master of the acoustic bass.
LINES & GROOVES is a memorable jazz outing and fun to listen to. Topnotch performances.
