DIGISLEEVE EDITION

4 1/2 ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This is Ortega's second release on the Hat label (the first being a 1992 reissue of New Dance, recorded in 1966-67). More conservative than much of the product on the label, the instant recording features the saxophonist leading a pared down trio performing mostly standards with pianist Mike Wofford and drummer Joe LaBarbera. Ortega has a sort of split personality, one that feels as comfortable with bop and hard bop as it does with free-style improvisation.
