Doug Payne – Sound Insights
The aura of timelessness is present here in this neo-bop setting that could have easily emanated from 1962 as it did from 1987. Part of the group’s success is getting caught marvelously in Rudy Van Gelder’s superb sound structure, less like the pin-drop perfection of Double Take and more like the sterling signature work he’s since done for so many labels like Criss Cross, Venus, HighNote and others.
