Label: Concord Jazz
This pickup group of individuals who lead other bands (and write original music) knows that jazz needs some new pop tunes to interpret. Thus, we get new takes on Pearl Jam's "Oceans," N.E.R.D.'s "Fly or Die" and The Throne's "No Church in the Wild." (In "Church," Christian aTunde Adjuah's trumpet takes on the Frank Ocean hook.) The idea isn't to lead listeners to the land of cheap crossover, but to update the standards tradition. Bassist Ben Williams, guitarist Matthew Stevens, and pianists Kris Bowers and Gerald Clayton help keep things sufficiently smart on this mainstream-friendly album.
