John Hebert's Sounds of Love
Mingus is probably on the minds of many bassists, but I'm willing to wager that Hebert is primarily taken with Charles as a composer. His new quintet with Taylor Ho Bynum, Tim Berne, Fred Hersch, and Ches Smith looks intriguing on paper (Hebert's got big ears when it comes to juxtaposing jazz personalities), and when they get ahold of meaty items such as "Remember Rockefeller at Attica," those jail doors will crash open with a bang.
