Kenny Barron Trio hits the sweet spot with this solid offering

There’s something for every jazz fan in this release by the venerable Kenny Barron Trio, from their tip of the hat to Bebop’s Bud Powell in Bud Like to Barron’s own infectiously lyrical Magic Dance, which swings unapologetically into a joyous, Caribbean tinged space without ever sliding into anything facile or insipid.  In a tribute to another master, the trio adds something fresh and substantial to Thelonious Monk’s lilting Shuffle Boil without sacrificing Monk’s trademark quirk and angularity.  Such a great, balanced album, with a generous helping of Barron originals throughout.  You’ll want to play it over and over again.
