It only takes a spin or two to hear that this two-tenor romp from Chris Cheek and Seamus Blake is all about panache. On their new Criss Cross album, the saxophonists ping off each other, and with every move their rhythm section has ‘em covered with the kind of pliable mainstream swing that’s fully focused on nuance. It’s certainly an unusual jazz outfit that turns to the hymn of the Beach Boys’ “’Til I Die,” but this one is cagey enough to plop it adjacent to “I Surrender Dear.” Breadth is everything.
