Bassist Ben Wolfe
's first record for Posi-Tone is as strong as any headline sets we've heard from him to date! Wolfe
is leading an excellent quartet session here for the most part – with the always great Orrin Evans on piano, Donald Edwards on drums and Stacy Dillard on saxes – plus a sharp guest appearance by trumpeter Josh Evans on one track. With the exception nice, nocturnal reading Jerome Kern's "All The Things You Are", it's all Wolfe
originals – led strongly by Wolfe
's prominent, but never overbearing bass and brilliant rhythmic interplay with Evans and Edwards, with plenty of room for Dillard to shine. Includes "Heroist", "Hat In Hand", "Community", "Love Is Near", "Chronos", "All The Things Yo Are","STFU" with Josh Evans, "The Whisperer", "Becoming Brothers", "The Balcony", "Camelot's Lean'", "Hat In Hand"" and "If Only".
