Joe Lovano Quartet & Hank Jones
The intergenerational love fest Lovano's got going with octogenarian Hank Jones is built on the timbers of shared language; they both dig the myriad ways a melody can be squeezed to suit personal needs and personal style. The boomer saxophonist is jazzs towering figure these days. His jack-of-all-trades persona (abstract, pretty, blustery, forlorn) comes from absorbing history and trusting instincts. Mainstream swing at its most insightful and pleasurable.
