This album was recorded with a studio audience present and without rehearsals and formal arrangements, and it is a testimony to the power of spontaneity in jazz when favorable conditions and inspired personnel are present. With a repertoire of tunes mainly from the ’50s and ’60s, drummer Gerry Gibbs’ trio, which includes veterans Kenny Barron (piano) and Ron Carter (bass), creates a masterful example of straight-ahead jazz. Guests Cassandra Wilson (vocals) and Roy Hargrove (trumpet and flugelhorn), who appear on three and four tracks, respectively, up the ante. OWEN CORDLE
