Veteran altoist Andy Fusco, since his SteepleChase leader debut in 2015 with “Whirlwind” album, has been releasing one album a year to fill the gap of his under-recorded period of the prior decade. This new album, however, had to wait for a little over a year for Fusco’s recovery from medical treatment. He recovered and returned to record here arguably one of his best albums.

“Fusco possesses a tart, live wire tone, and almost every note feels urgent and animated. His vocabulary is an invigorating extension of the bebop lexicon, with nods to Charlie Parker and Jackie McLean. Flinging short, disparate phrases into the air and miraculously forging connections between them, there's often an unhinged, thrill-ride quality to his playing. Even in the midst of a profuse, jam-packed statement, Fusco never eclipses the rhythm section.” (David A. Orthmann – All About Jazz on SCCD 31875 Vortex)
