Trumpeter Charles Tolliver avoids the usual trap of retro-centric nostalgia inherent to big band settings on this lively 2007 outing. Tolliver's ensemble, which includes members of his fine 1970s outfit Music Inc. Orchestra, unleashes a somewhat raw and ragged energy, and WITH LOVE is all the better for it.
The 16-piece ensemble roars through six Tolliver originals and a Thelonious Monk cover ("'Round Midnight") with a bright, audacious confidence. Tolliver's arrangements make the most of the group's potential for tension, color, and dynamics, and there are plenty of outstanding solos from the musicians on both the modal numbers and the more traditionally melodic pieces.
