Joyous Encounter by Joe Lovano
Released: May 2005
Label: Blue Note Records
Considering that the ever-searching Lovano has never cut back-to-back sets with the same group before, this return pairing with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Paul Motian and drummer George Mraz has officially moved beyond "joyous encounter" status. Late-bloomer Lovano is at the height of his considerable tenor powers, while the rest of the quartet is in perfect sync.
