Feelin' It (Original Records) by Stan Bock & The New Tradition
Speedy, energetic, rambunctious. Buster Keaton on a TGV with no brakes.
Trombonist Stan Bock returns with a finely-tuned sextet for his third OA2 release. A highly improvisational group, they combine the group soloing aspects of traditional jazz with the forms, hybrid rhythmic grooves, and harmonies of more contemporary jazz. Featuring saxophonists Renato Caranto and John Nastos, and pianist Clay Giberson, the band performs a wide range of originals and an interesting collection of standards - made that much more interesting by the group's rakish new arrangements - including "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," Bernstein's "Maria," Cole Porter's "Let's Fall in Love," and Joe Raposo's "Bein' Green."
