The two discs are very different in mood and style with the latter being less, intense perhaps, but still looser, riskier, and genial. Bishop’s solo on “Black and Crazy Blues,” is pure hard bop-blues swinging. Suites Vandermark arranged are wonderful, full of surprise and great humor — something you wouldn’t expect from him, but you did from Kirk. If you didn’t have a chance to pick these up on their original release, now’s your chance. This set is not to be missed.
