Alright, this is simply fun. A well traveled jazzbo sets out to do jazz takes on cartoon show themes but takes such a left turn that once the improvs start, it’s jamming for the joy of it as there’s no way you can recognize “Top Cat” or “Captain Kangaroo” or any of the other tracks, especially when he veers away from the stated mission completely. Fun stuff by some real pros that play like it’s still the 60s and they like doing this. Ear opening contemporary jazz that doesn’t let you down.
