O’s Notes: Drummer Jeff Guthery doesn’t shy away from provocative themes as evidenced by the artwork in the liner notes. His music parallels that theme. He teams up with Kenny Werner (p), George Garzone (sax) and Bruno Raberg (b) and The East Coast Scoring Orchestra conducted by Kristo Kondakci for Black Paintings. There is a world of adventure and mystery on this recording ranging from the free jazz and spirit of “Atropos” to the classic “Judith”, a cinematic orchestration that placed us front row center at the symphony. We preferred the latter and thankfully the session is more focused along those lines.
