TCB, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Mark (p) shares the stage with strong sidemen including Matt Wilson (d) and Tim Hagans (t). They swing on a blend of six originals and two classics. It’s neo-bop in motion, subtle beauty that is sophisticated yet not flashy. Soskin has been around, playing with Joe Henderson and for many years with Sonny Rollins. But this is his date and he shines.
