    Personnel: Michael Carvin (drums); Marcus Strickland, Branford Marsalis (saxophone); Carlton Holmes (piano); Dezron Douglas (upright bass).
    This volume in the ongoing series honoring unsung or little-known jazz performers features the eclectic drummer Michael Carvin, whose career has included time as a Motown session player as well as stints with artists including Pharaoh Saunders, Cecil Taylor, and Dizzy Gillespie. Accompanying noted musicians like the saxophonists Branford Marsalis and Marcus Strickland, Carvin's fiery playing propels his quintet through a galvanizing set of post-bop standards, including an incendiary "I'll Remember April," an Africanized "A Night in Tunisia," and a lyrical medley of "Prisoner of Love" and "Body and Soul."

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.65) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Calvin can do more with a few single strokes than any other drummer, and he shows his command of the minimalist approach on Charles Lloyd's 'Forest Flower'..."
    JazzTimes (p.145) - "Carvin drives the band with his relentless beat and irrepressible spirit. But he is also capable of playing brushes with Zen-like restraint."
