Lindberg's sentimentality certainly tilts to the avant garde. These albums keep close, however, to the hard bop taste. I can't think that any jazz fan will not find something here to treasure.
I am playing the title cuts from the first two albums and 'E.t.p.' from the last. I would note that Eric Watson's playing on the last album is channeling Thelonious Monk. Listen to it, if you are a Monk fan and tell me you don't wonder if master's ghost is in the keys.
This is wonderful music.
