The epitome of groove and deep song. Mwandishi era bass titan Buster Williams is here along with singer Jean Baylor, saxophonist Bruce Williams, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, pianist George Colligan and drummer Lenny White. Entering a Buddhist feeling of transcendence you are always in good hands on an album recorded in a top New York studio last year. Williams says: “As I get older, I discover that there's more over the horizon than you think. The horizon may look like the end, but the closer you get the more you realize that you’ll never reach it. What you can see from where you are, seems to be limited, but with each step, you see more and more.” Proof though none is needed that the dreams of the elders are more meaningful in jazz than practically any musical genre out there.
