By Brad Goode
Nice electric groove like Miles. Fluid dynamic sound.
Long known for his highly swinging recordings and performances, the virtuostic trumpeter also has his "other" side, first exposed on the 1988 release "Shock of the New." 25 years and 13 albums later, having established himself as a soloist of immediacy and warmth and a composer of striking originality, Goode is still stretching. With his culture-spanning band of Ghanian drummer Paa Kow, Brazilian bassist Bijoux Barbosa, Lebanese percussionist Rony Barrak, guitarist Bill Kopper and keyboardist Jeff Jenkins, "Chicago Red" also features Goode's explorations in polytonal chord cycles - no less bold a break from standard procedure than fusion once was - to create an eclectic, electric and thoroughly grooving album.
