Jimmy Weinstein
nostalgia  (AC-5009, released 1994)
Drummer/composer Weinstein, from Illinois by way of Spain, and his international quartet make modern music. Sometimes it swings, sometimes it floats; sometimes it's richly harmonic, sometimes it inhabits post-Ornette terrain with no fixed chords. The concept encompasses a full range of jazz tradition (witness "Laura" "I'll Be Seeing You," "Weaver of Dreams") but it generates a group sound that could only be 1990's. Influenced by Paul Motian, Dewey Redman, Stan Getz, the great lyricists of modern jazz, rising tenor star Chris Cheek is the perfect lead voice for Weinstein's music.

"Four Stars...a strong, consistent first outing..." 

-Jon Andrews, Down Beat

"Superb...taken one tune at a time, the album is acutely lyrical and uniformly pleasing. Taken as a whole, it's a real feat....a tone of longing tempered by cool wisdom infuses the entire disc."
-Daniel Gewertz, Boston Phoenix
