Joe Cohn's second Criss Cross outing is a swinging affair.
Joined by Dutch master pianist Peter Beets, and New York A-Listers, bassist John Webber and drummer Kenny Washington, the young guitar veteran (who is the son of the iconic tenor saxophonist-composer Al Cohn) addresses a strong program of first-rate, less traveled jazz and songbook standards, uncorking a string of inspired solos that blend polish and vigor with a style that traverses a broad timeline of vocabulary on his instrument - he reaffirms his position as a major voice on today's playing field.
