    Medicine Hat, the debut recording from the Will Bernard 4-Tet, is an engagingly eclectic set of adventurous contemporary jazz. Much like Medeski, Martin and Wood, Bernard has a rootsy worldbeat groove that draws heavily from soul-jazz, but his solos are far more ambitious and risky than those of the trio. There are a few moments on Medicine Hat where Bernard and his mates meander instead of explore, but on the whole, it's a first-class debut. ~ Leo Stanley

  • Critic Reviews
    Musician (5/98, pp.87-88) - "...Organ and guitar spin chilly little circles around each other...like Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery back in the day....There's hair-raising wah-wah breaks all over this album, as well as a sense of slightly tempered wailing-rock improvisation riding the jazz grooves..."
