    Avery Sharpe, best known for his long association with McCoy Tyner, is a superior bassist. On some of the selections on Dragon Fly, he overdubs a second bass part and can be heard soloing like a guitar over his own accompaniment in a quartet that also includes pianist Onaje Allan Gumbs and drummer Winard Harper. Most of the other selections are trio numbers although there are two appearances by tenor-saxophonist Chico Freeman and three vocals from Jeri Brown with Athina heard on background vocals on "Swingfield." Brown, who scats well on "My Favorite Things," is featured on "Change" in a duet with Sharpe. But since Sharpe is the dominant voice, the relaxed Dragon Fly set is primarily of interest to lovers of the string bass. ~ Scott Yanow
