O’s Notes: Master jazz bassist Brian Bromberg gets his groove going once again on it Is What It Is, thirteen racy contemporary jazz tunes with loads if punch. He invites several first call musicians to join him including Patrice Rushen (p), George Duke (p), Gerald Albright (sax), Jeff Lorber (p), Rick Braun (t), Richard Elliott (sax) and Randy Brecker (t). But make no mistake, this is Brian’s album and he leads the way with pizzazz. Sometimes you may mistake his bass for a lead guitar but it is always bass from Bromberg, melodic, sweet and with authority. This is another winner start to finish.
