Great tenor sounds from Wayne Escoffery – set to an excellent groove that mixes Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano! The album's one of the best we've heard from Escoffery in years – a date that really sets his horn free, yet also has a soulful focus, too – one that definitely comes from the Rhodes, handled by Orrin Evans, plus more keyboards from Adam Holzman. Basslines – from Hans Glawischnig and Ricky Rodrigues – are nice and warm, and often quite mellow – and Jason Brown's drums have this subtle approach that really lets the tenor and keyboards take the lead. Titles include "World Of The Bardo", "Banishment Of The Lost Spirit", "If I Am Who You Are", "Selena's Song", and "Presumed Innocence" – plus "Two Souls", which features Escoffery on soprano, blowing spontaneously alongside acoustic piano from Evans.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing ... CD
