O’s Notes: Jazz drummer Donald Edwards assembles a quintet with Walter Smith III (sax), David Gilmore (g), Orrin Evans (p) and Eric Revis (b). They embark on a journey of modern jazz that includes provocative free jazz compositions “When” and “Nightmare of Fun” reminding us of the voices of Coltrane, Mingus and Ornette Coleman. Evolution Of An Advanced Mind takes us from Bebop to Avant Garde to Modern Jazz to Fusion in a tight package that never drifts too far away from on point!
