Steve Lehman may study music composition at Columbia University, but that doesn't mean he can't oversee a blowing session. Proving this, perhaps, seems like the motivation behind this trio record, which comes after the big "compositional statement" album Travail, Transformation and Flow. Here, Lehman and Co. do justice by Coltrane's "Moment's Notice" and Jackie McLean's "Mr. E.," while also making space for some original burners like "Foster Brothers." Hard funk and post-bop are suggested throughout, as are those compositional chops Lehman has been developing.
