October 1997

Sonny Stitt and Paul Gonsalves
Salt and Pepper
Impulse!

This trio reminds you of Bill Evans and early Keith Jarrett. Pianist Tennyson, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Terry Silverlight make introspection swing. A glowing-then-fiery Randy Brecker, on fluegelhorn, and a mellow Dewey Redman, on tenor saxophone, join the trio on one track each. Except for Coltrane's "Naima" (a two-piano duet via overdubbing) and Bill Frisell's "Strange Meeting," the tunes are Tennyson originals. A moody and ingratiating album.
