Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jazz Incorporated is a collective ensemble co-led by Jazz drum legend Louis Hayes and trumpetist Jeremy Pelt. This contemporary hard-bop quartet plays repertoire from the legacy of their drummer as well as some elegant standards ("We Kiss In A Shadow") and original contributions ("Hey Jimmy" and "Shout!"). The energy during these sets was electric and the house was packed. Louis Hayes demonstrates the authoritative swing that has established his legend. He has been the driving force behind bands led by Cannonball Adderly, Horace Silver and Freddie Hubbard. Jeremy Pelt plays with an effortless majesty and true jazz conviction to each phrase. Pianist Anthony Wonsey delivers impeccable accompiantment and some Read more sparkling solos. Dezron Douglas makes his second SmallsLIVE appearance (first on Steve Davis: Live At Smalls -SL0005) proving why he is rapidly becoming the first call bassman for the top-shelf groups. The music is exciting, accessible and full of life. Read less
