From the two opening tracks, "Beautiful Love" and "Just in Time," you can feel the pitter patter rush of adrenaline between drummer David Hocker and bassist Chris Colangelo. Enthusiastically driving one another to the next level, around the next corner, and over the precipice, the duo mounts a subtle yet forceful attack. Never taking over the entire sound, the drummer and bassist allow for saxophonist Chuck Manning to glide over the tenacious rhythms like a silkworm. For a live music recording, it must have been a special night if experienced firsthand, but the recording does the performance justice in that it captures the energy of the performers clearly. Pianist Jane Getz joins in on "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" as well as on Monk’s "Pannonica." She fits right in with the trio, but the band’s dynamic does change, neither for the better nor for the worse. I think psychologically speaking a trio works in a different fashion, and a piano is such a full instrument that it, by nature, dominates the other instruments. The quartet is careful not to let that happen, as they all share the workload in a respectful manner. The pinnacle of the night’s performance from the quartet was Miles Davis’ "Solar." Overall this CD contains over an hour’s worth of music. I do not know what the band members are doing today, but it would be very interesting to hear them in a studio setting with some original compositions to play.
