MATT PARKER TRIO / Present Time: It's the tone that grabs you right away on the sax man's second outing. Circling the wagons to only include old classmates of 20 years standing, it's too bad Parker came along around the time the major's stopped supporting creative, high octane outings like this. Playing like he has the knowledge of the history of jazz sax at his fingertips, there's no way you're not going to be taken with this polished, soulful outing that's really more of a thrill ride than any Great America roller coaster. Killer stuff.
