Audio CD - Tyrone Brown - The Magic Within
Bassist Tyrone Brown plops string players amid a sizzling jazz rhythm section...but the Abington-based Brown, longtime bassist to the late drummer Max Roach, never loses focus on this as a jazz excursion. His 10 compositions, inspired by the paintings of abstract artist Herbert Gentry, offer Monkian views of the world, fertile grooves and snake-charming lyricism. 'Dancing Turk' is nicely exotic, while the title track bubbles along with a respectable solo by cellist Jim Holton.

Throughout, there's the clear-your-head playing of altoist Bobby Zankel, whose keening lines seem to get more to the point every year. Vibraphonist Randy Sutin offers some sympathetic playing, while drummer Craig McIver is at the root of every happening vibe.
