Drummer Steve Fidyk gathers together a powerful lineup of "Allied Forces" for his second tour of duty with Posi-Tone. Employing a combination of both subtlety and power, Fidyk clearly demonstrates his commanding mastery of the trap kit. Additionally, his skillful leadership of an all-star band — featuring the amazing frontline contributions of tenor saxophonist Doug Webb and alto saxophonist Joseph Henson alongside the able assistance of guitarist Shawn Purcell, and organist extraordinaire Brian Charette joining Fidyk in the rhythm section — successfully pushes his hard hitting melodicmessage right to the front lines and then brings everyone safely back home for a victory parade. Critical listeners will certainly enjoy this energetic and thoughtful program of swingingly straight ahead selections. Musicfans should agree that "Allied Forces" brings together the best elements of straight forward jazz, and successfullyannounces Fidyk as an exciting bandleader to keep an eye on for years to come.
