Jazz Release of the Week


The Yellowjackets Featuring Mike Stern - Lifecycle (2008 Heads Up)


For almost 30 years The Yellowjackets have been presenting some of the most
exciting jazz around. The quartet of Russell Ferrante, Jimmy Haslip, Bob
Mintzer and Marcus Baylor are still able to produce compositions that are
fresh containing creative melodies and stunning solos. Mike Stern has more
than a dozen LP releases to his name and has played with many of the greats
including Miles Davis.


The collaboration on this latest Yellowjackets release is nothing sort of
sensational and sounds as if the two entities have been fusing music for
years. No where on the release is this more evident than on "Falken's Maze"
a Mintzer composition. Everyone gets in on the act on this track not only
delivering blistering solos but supporting as well. 


All ten tracks are original compositions by the band members and range from
funky jazz to fusion jazz to straight jazz. The band members have room to
move, which has always been the case with Yellowjacket's lineups of the past
and on this release Stern is the icing on the cake.
