Yet another great CD from Canadian-born tenor player Grant Stewart. As usual, he has his signature sound with a tone that is very strong complemented by a "rough around the edges" quality. Backing him up on this CD are Tardo Hammer (piano), Peter Washington (bass), and Joe Farnsworth (drums). They provide unflagging support and all shine when given their space on the CD. Hammer's approach is a perfect foil for Stewart, providing solid comping and imaginative soloing, all while swinging with ease.
