Vibraphonist Dick Sisto's follow up to his earlier independently produced CD, American Love Song, is worth seeking. He's backed by a strong rhythm section, including pianist Kenny Werner, bassist Drew Gress, and either Steve Davis or Barry Ries on drums. His "End of Time" was written for the funeral of a good friend, but there's nothing maudlin about the tune; it is a driving yet reflective number. "Rhythm Thing" is another fine original by the leader, an up-tempo bop chart that features Barry Ries on fluegelhorn; Sisto also composed "Two Five City," a strutting hard bop vehicle. His interpretations of standards are also inspired. "You Must Believe in Spring" is played with a samba feeling, "Nature Boy" has a more exotic air than usual due to Sisto's use of a talking drum in addition to vibes. Ries also plays talking drum on several selections, including his composition "Insider," which has a captivating theme that is hard to predict. The closer, "Back to Nature," is a group improvisation by Sisto, Werner, and Ries that moves well into free jazz.
