We gave it a B+

Space Available is the second album by trombonist Bill Watrous’ band since its 1978 founding — and the first to capture its driving vitality. Savor the intricate sax on ”Mama Lama Samba” and the shouting brass on ”Village Dance” followed by a remarkable multiphonics coda by Watrous. One problem: Fans may wish Watrous’ shimmering horns were featured a bit more. B+
