Forman on The Job
Bruce Forman is a bebop guitarist of exceptional talent, and with this collection of outstanding performances he generates the kind of cool that can only be found in a hot smoky room. Forman on the Job features the incomparable Joe Henderson on sax, and the steel drums of Andy Narell, on a selection of material that showcases versatility. To the pulse of driving rhythms on a tune such as A Night in Tunisia, Henderson and Forman soar in improvisatory excellence, and a standard such as People Will Say Were In Love (which includes some fine arco work by John Clayton, Jr.) stands next to Formans melodic Lullaby. Through it all, Formans guitar playing shows the characteristic insight and artistry that has caused Barney Kessel to call him one of the great lights of our age right now, on guitar.
Joe Henderson (saxophone), Andy Narell (steel drums), John Santos (percussion), John Clayton, Jr. (bass), Vince Lateano (drums), Mark Levine (piano)
