John Adams, "Fly By Night" (Audio CD)
An acoustic-jazz recording, combining four originals and arrangements of four standards. Stylistic influences that are evident range from Art Blakey, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, to Bill Evans, and Keith Jarrett, and Kenny Wheeler. It was recorded live in club setting, with good clarity and warmth. The group on the recording, "The John Adams Quartet" is a working jazz unit, and the CD displays their powerful rapport.
