Great extended work from vibist Jay Hoggard – a live date that has him spinning out beautifully on a set of really long tracks! Hoggard's trademark sensitivity to sounds and tones is very firmly in place here – but the live setting almost seems to focus it a bit more, even though most tracks on the set hit a length that goes well past 12 minutes in length. Most numbers start with Jay feeling things out in solo mode – then bring in rhythmic support from Geri Allen on piano, Anthony Cox on bass, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums. Titles include "The Guiding Spirit", "Monk's Mood", "Mystic Winds Tropic Breezes", "Night In Tunisia", and "Comfort In The Storm". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A very sweet, and oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker ... CD
