Released:
Label: Criss Cross Jazz
This talented but under-heard drummer had a vision of the surrealist painter traipsing through a modern day Brooklyn, and wisely took it as an omen to write some new tunes, and to take a modern jazz band (including Chris Potter on reeds) into the studio. There's plenty of good humor and mildly eccentric texture throughout, justifying the Dali conceit. Penn's driving but never over-busy drums are well paired with Adam Rogers' warm guitar tone on the up-tempo numbers. And Potter has an inspired turn on the bass clarinet during "A Walk on the B-H-P." Penn should record as a leader more often.
