On The Art Of War, his Criss Cross debut, drummer-composer Ralph Peterson returns here to the two-horns and rhythm format with which he kicked off his recording career, deploying an approach that blends the drive of Art Blakey with the edginess of Miles Davis.
Joined by an ensemble of youngsters - Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Jimmy Greene (tenor and soprano sax), Orrin Evans (piano) and Eric Revis (bass) - whose ability to dip into the tradition and move forward equips them to navigate the primal complexities of Peterson's sonic landscape, the drummer offers his swingingest date in years.
