Matt Wilson’s Arts and Crafts

The Scenic Route

2007-02-19

Trumpeter Terell Stanford steals the show in this interesting set from drummer and jazz arranger Matt Wilson. Loosely based on a “traveling theme,” the range from the experimental (#1) to the sublime (Monk’s “Feel the Sway” and Ornette Coleman’s “Rejoicing”) to the classic (“Tenderly” and the last cut which uses John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance” as a coda). I think the Coleman tune is the stand-out of the record. 02/07 MJVD
