|Saxophonist-Flutist Henry Cook and drummer Bobby Ward are two mainstays of the Roxbury/Boston jazz scene. First united in the Billy Skinner Double Jazz Quartet in the 80s , their partnership yielded a previous Accurate release, "Dimensional Odyssey" in 1994 (like "Kosen Rufu," the winner of a Boston Music Award), along with participation in Salim Washington's "Love in Exile" in 1998. Here they deliver a scorching live set.
"They went to Detroit ready to play and the audience dug it! Mingus would have enjoyed how they risk bursting the seams of "Fables of Faubus". Cook (is) a reckonable force on both E-flat reeds. This band sounds like no other!"
Jazz Times, June 2000
"The Henry Cook Band (is) absolutely tearing it up on this live recording...truly new and exciting...artful, creative and good music...leaves the listener wanting much, much more."
