“A double-fisted bout of unrelenting swing.” — DOWNBEAT **** Playing alto saxophone that Cannonball, Stitt, and Woods — not to mention Bird — would love, Vincent Herring shows yet again why he belongs in their company! Like his heroes, Herring doesn’t rely on gimmicks — he just flat-out swings. It’s a timeless approach that is paired perfectly with the incomparable Cyrus Chestnut, who contributes several powerful solos of his own. This entertaining record includes classics like “Love Walked In,” “Tenderly,” and “Strike Up the Band” as well as originals like Herring’s “Elation” and Chestnut’s “Uptown Shuffle.”
