The trumpet of Jeremy Pelt really makes this album sparkle – blown with a mixture of lyrical tones and sharper edges, and getting great support from a lineup that features Anthony Wonsey on piano, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums! The solo horn in the lead also gives the record a definite trumpet focus in its execution, and choice of tunes – which include excellent numbers like Art Farmer's "Punsu", Dizzy Gillespie's "Woody N You", and Duke Pearson's sublime "Is That So" – offered up here in homage to Lee Morgan's wonderful reading of the track on his Rajah album. Pelt also contributed the original "Shout" – alongside Wonsey's "Hey Jimmy" – and like most albums in this great series, the tracks are quite long – with loads of room for solo space!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Forget the "punk" in the group's name, and just focus on the "bop" – as the quintet have a nicely angular sort of energy, one that's definitely modern, but which certainly owes a lot to the sharp changes of jazz generations gone by! The instrumentation really draws a lot ... CD

Tremendous work from Azar Lawrence – part of a great return to form the reedman has had in recent years – and, if anything, a run of music that's maybe even greater than his legendary sides from the 70s! Lawrence is razor-sharp throughout – spinning out bold, soulful lines on ... CD

One of Stanley Turrentine's best albums ever – but a record that was recorded in 1962, yet only released by Blue Note 20 years later! The set's a great example of the sheer raw power that Stan had in his tone before it got watered down by his pop-jazz recordings of the later 60s – a ... CD
