    Gunn Fu is one of trumpeter Russell Gunn's better hard bop/post-bop sets, as opposed to his more hip-hop-oriented projects. Gunn's sound is appealing, his ideas are creative, and he has a particularly strong supporting cast. Tenor saxophonist Greg Tardy blends and contrasts well with Gunn, vibraphonist Stefon Harris is a major asset to the ensembles, pianist James Hurt has plenty of good spots, and Sherman Irby adds his flute to two numbers. Highlights include the driving "Gunn Fu," an up-tempo "Solar," and the up-tempo "The Final Call," which has a riotous conclusion. Highly recommended. ~ Scott Yanow

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (8/97, p.83) - "...Gunn's fat, warm tone, his ability to phrase dynamically and resourcefully at any tempo, and his mature, substantive expression, grab attention....Each player shines in solos and comping....fine talent assembled for this exciting session..."
