Merge ... CD Single Malt, 2009. Used ...
The greatest work to date from Chicago saxophonist ChrisGreene – a set that's got plenty of keyboards in the mix alongside his saxes, and some drums that get nicely funky at times too! The album's got a really great 21st Century take on older soul jazz modes – not just retro funky jazz, nor some sort of CTI update – but a fresh approach that still has all the crispness of the small combo jazz you'd find today on the Chicago scene, dosed nicely with an undercurrent of soul that gives things a slightly classic quality too! Keyboards are by Damian Espinosa – and other players include Marc Piane on bass and Tyrone Blair on drums and percussion. Titles include "In Confidence", "Borderline", "Lotus Blossom", "LFEI", "M Tati", "You'll Thank Me Later", and "Good Riddance". CD
