This all-star quintet is almost too good to be true. A group featuring a saxophone front line of Vincent Herring and Eric Alexander, two of most important musicians of their generation, and the sophisticated pianist David Hazeltine would already make it essential listening but this band also features the indispensable jazz legends Buster Williams and Louis Hayes. The Guardian calls Buster Williams “one of the great acoustic bassists,” and JazzTimes adds, “Williams’ résumé ranks with that of any bassist in the modern era.” “Louis Hayes spent his youth creating the pulse of hard-bop, as a top-shelf drummer with artists like Cannonball Adderley and Horace Silver,” reports NPR and the Washington Post calls him “a catalyst, channeling his boundless energy into the band itself and being frugal with Blakey- and Roach-style pyrotechnics.” It should be three unforgettable nights of music.
