Product Description:

Personnel: Jimmy Bruno (electric guitar); Bobby Watson (alto saxophone); Craig Thomas (bass); Vince Ector (drums).
Recorded at the Birdland Cafe, New York, New York on December 15 & 16, 1996. Includes liner notes by Jim Ferguson.
This excellent set from guitarist Jimmy Bruno can easily be divided into two. The first four numbers (which include "Move" and "Grooveyard") showcase Bruno in a trio with bassist Craig Thomas and drummer Vince Ector; the guitarist mostly swings quite hard. The other six songs feature the great altoist Bobby Watson, who takes spirited solos on "Segment," "Au Privave," and "Anthropology," adding to the intensity and drive of this high-quality bop set. There are some quieter moments, including an alto/guitar duet on "These Foolish Things," but the uptempo tunes are most memorable. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
