Joe Lovano joins pianists Jovino Santos Neto and Weber Iago for a spectacular splash through Jobim's "Wave." While remaining respectful to the original source material, this impromptu group (Lovano came onstage as a guest at the end of the Neto/Iago set at the Caramoor Jazz Festival) brings to mind the duet work of Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, but with Lovano helping to take the song in a more "out" direction. Both pianists do their best to show just how much intrigue can be found in a well-worn melody, and Lovano is obviously more than up to the task.
