    Where some of their peers have explored the stranger outreaches of afro-tech-jazz, or shown us just how darned dialectically integrated jazz and hip-hop are, Branford Marsalis and his crew have firmly entrenched themselves in a past long gone.

    The album is a knockout: hard nosed and hyperacute, tradition minded but modern, defined by the high-wire grace of his working band.

    A tight set of well-slung tunes that show the elements of a classic quartet outing in nice balance.

    It's often observed that this fine saxophonist's studio recordings rarely catch his live-show fire.There's a relaxation about this one, however that comes very close.

    Rather than offer anything new, they instead focus on re-introducing the band as a creative unit whose capacity for musical excellence is undiminished.
