What places this CD apart from the usual is its emphasis on solo performances, good group work, and interesting jazz motifs. Give a listen to "Hancock Tribute" and you will discover some fine musicians at work, and the collection as a whole reflects well the skill of the performers!
Victor Borken is superb on trumpet as is Paul Van Egmond on trombone. Topnotch musicians, every one!
