very worthwhile. The Hemingway Quintet cds with Reijseger( as well as
Michael Moore, Wolter Weirbos, and Mark Dresser) are some of the best
jazz cds of the 90's, imho. Great tunes, beyond top notch musicians,
great improv in structured and unstructured settings. I would not
consider these cds difficult at all, just adventurous and high
spirited. My favorites from this era are " Demon Chaser, "Perfect
World" and "Slamadam" Hemingway's recent outings with his updated
American version of this group( w/ Dresser, Eskelin and Robertson) are
stellar as well. Check them out. Cheers,
