"The first real innovator to hit jazz drumming in the '90s" Entertainment Weekly. Organic, acoustic, powerful. Leon Parker is a revolution in jazz drumming. Only a a real master can go towards total synthesis. Parker focuses on the very essence of rhythm as no other drummer ever did. Ugonna Okegwo is the ideal match for providing a mezmerizing foundation for the soloists to recreate Parker's hypnotic compositions, or a fresh, delightful verion of "In A Sentimental Mood". Parker extracts his joy from integrating his musical relationships into renewed configurations of time and tone. His sound has now equal. This CD is a must have in any serious jazz collection.
