The trumpeter comes out with both fists swinging on the new "Snuck In," a disc that explains his skills at reconfiguring neglected deep cuts from the jazz canon. His Tony Williams lands jab after jab, and his Andrew Hill heals most of the gashes. The lyricism of saxophonist J.D. Allen has a lot to do with that assuaging process. Weiss has built a quintet that waxes fierce one moment, flowery the next. Both tacks are pretty damn convincing.
