Cookin' For You
Eddie Marshall, a sax and flute man, digs a warm and fuzzy sound. On Cookin' for You he concocts a contemporary jazz fiesta of Latin rhythms. Two cats from Pat Metheny's band, Paul Wertico and Steve Rodby, are part of bands which run in size from four to nine. That latter packs a punch.
The approach is easy going. A few cuts challenge player's creative juices, the best example being Pachelbel's "Canon in D": done in 6/8, the piece's solemn mood is ingeniously altered to embrace an expression of pure joy.
