Soul Food (Music - Cyrus Chestnut)

B

Chestnut knows his way around the jazz piano tradition and such spin-off neighborhoods as soul-jazz (as on the title cut and ”Wellllll!”), gospel (a rousingly hip, solo ”Swing Low Sweet Chariot”), and the heady zone of ”Minor Funk.” Stellar guest saxists James Carter and Gary Bartz and vibist Stefon Harris add distinction to an album whose spirit seems scattered, but has plenty to savor — including Chestnut’s fine playing.
