British legends Courtney Pine and Omar join forces on four tracks for this exemplary set of deep, spiritual, funky and vocal jazz and ballads that demonstrates why both are so highly regarded. ‘Rules’ borrows a central riff idea from ‘Red Clay’ and Omar’s unmistakable tones work so well with the multi-layered beat on this infectiously foot tapping groove, ‘Darker Than Blue’ has a sauntering blues vibe while ‘In Another Time’ utilises a bossa rhythm. Omar also features on the jagged beat interpretation of Hancock’s ‘Butterfly’. The brooding ‘Rivers Of Blood’ is a slow and languorous meditation, ‘How Many More’ has a smoky atmosphere lead by piano and sax while the flourishes of the EW 5000 – an electronic wind instrument – gives ‘You Know Who You Are’ a soaring cosmic feel. Great album – those Omar tracks in particular will please lovers of vocal jazz with a groove but the rest is impeccable too.
