REVIEW: Dick Oatts/Mats Holmquist New York Jazz Orchestra, 'A Tribute To Herbie +1,' Summit >>

The 2016 big band renaissance marches on with the Dick Oates/Mats Holmquist New York Jazz Orchestra's action-packed Hancock nod, A Tribute To Herbie+1 (Summit Records) in which the legendary piano player's acclaimed '60s and '70s catalog is combed through to pick eight gems. It proves to be a whole new way to dig Herbie Hancock and I, for one, love it.
