The Brooklyn bassist has done a great job of coordinating the action between front line and rhythm section with this quintet. Melodies bob and sway, solo duties are passed around equally, and as the the tunes evolve, they veer into spots you’d never have guessed they were interested in. The best part is the agility that marks their work. “The Night The Blind Man Dreamt That He Went Blind” knows how to break from its swag routine long enough to reveal a more contemplative vibe. Could be because that front line is comprised of three of BK’s wisest players, saxophonist Loren Stillman, cornetist Kirk Knuffke and trombonist Jacob Garchick.
