Pianist Mark Soskin established himself performing with tenor-sax titans such as Joe Henderson and Sonny Rollins. ONE HOPEFUL DAY finds him channeling the influence of those players into his own personal sound. Soskin's approach is reminiscent of post-bop master pianists Cedar Walton and (especially) McCoy Tyner--terse, lyrical, and percussive. The band he assembled here is aces: Chris Potter, with his surging, steely saxophone (sporting some of his own Rollins overtones); drummer Bill Stewart and his Art Blakey-like fire; and John Patitucci offering nimble elan on bass. The tunes are an attractive mix of standards and originals, with the pick hit being a thunderous version of the Monk chestnut "Bemsha Swing." Plus, guitarist John Abercrombie guests on two tracks.
