This breezy, boppish blowing session by Los Angeles-based trumpeter Jeff Kaye's quintet calls to mind Blue Note dates from the '50s and '60s featuring the likes of Lee Morgan, Horace Silver, Wynton Kelly, Freddie Hubbard, McCoy Tyner, Cedar Walton, Wayne Shorter, Tommy Flanagan, and so many others. Kaye was a member of [Ray] Charles' band from 1984-92, gigged with him on and off for the next nine years, rejoined the band in 2001-03, and performed on the soundtrack of Ray, the award-winning film about Charles' life. Tenor saxophonist George Harper and drummer Paul Kreibich are also alumni of the Ray Charles Big Band.
