After a solo lead-in that is quickly harmonized by his fellow musicians, saxophonist Glenn White's flavorful concoction pours off his horn like melting ice cream dripping in a summer sun. Joined by the wonderfully wispy Jamie Baum on flute, and supported by a fine steady rhythm section, White carries this ostinato- based tune to a climactic coda. His sound works particularly well in tandem with Baum's flowing flute. The tune's overall feel is similar to Baum's fine work on her recent noteworthy release Solace with drummer Hirshfield, also a member of Baum's working septet. Similarities aside, this is credible and interesting music.
