This all-star session is one giant rhythm section, and while "supergroups" often lead to a blowing session without much regard to musical interaction, this 1997 date is a fine example of many world-renowned musicians sacrificing their billboard-worthy names for high-level jazz. Holland and Haynes bounce quick ideas off of each other with the ears of seasoned masters. Whether Burton, Corea or Metheny are soloing, the others provide a gracious open space filled with tasty comping that never approaches overcrowding. The most collectively gifted rhythm section ever assembled? It's tough to argue against this one…
