You think the next generation of progressive players can't interpret the old songbook? Then queue this up, and check how drummer Rainey leads this quintet through music by the likes of Kern and Ellington. Pianist Kris Davis has shown an ability to find new ways into Monk's music, and she's a big part of why this recording works. The utter songfulness of the group's take on "Secret Love" (from the 1953 movie Calamity Jane) -- in which saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and trumpeter Ralph Alessi rocket lines back and forth -- is another highlight.
