    Personnel: Curtis Fuller (trombone); Javon Jackson (tenor saxophone); Doug Carn (piano); Rodney Jordan (double bass); Fritz Wise (drums).
    Taking off from 2004's Up Jumped Spring, trombonist Curtis Fuller once again reunites with a former Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers alum for a set of standards and original compositions. Joining Fuller this time is tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson, who played with Blakey from the late '80s until the drummer's death in 1990. Together they reignite the fiery, soulful Jazz Messenger aesthetic on such standout Fuller tunes as the John Coltrane-influenced "Maze" and the swinging hard boppish "A La Mode." Backing Fuller here is pianist Doug Carn, bassist Rodney Jordan, and drummer Fritz Wise. ~ Matt Collar

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.100) - "[T]he recording belongs to Fuller. His hazy tone and curt, snapping melodic lines sound more and more handsome as the recording goes on."
