Close

There are some excellent moments on this outing from the Red Rodney Quintet, but the overall results are a bit of a mixed bag. The band (trumpeter Rodney, Chris Potter on tenor, alto and soprano, pianist David Kikoski, bassist Chip Jackson and drummer Jimmy Madison) is excellent, swinging on some pieces, but several numbers utilize the synthesizers of Bob Belden, and there is a rap on “Moose the Mooche.” It is a bit of a schizophrenic session, with the music attempting to cover all bases but probably not completely satisfying anyone.
