Pianist Marc Cary, best-known for playing with Art Taylor's Wailers and Roy Hargrove, mostly sticks to originals on his debut CD as a leader. With the assistance of trumpeter Roy Hargrove, Ron Blake on tenor, bassist Dwayne Burno, drummer Dion Parson and guest shots from flutist Yarborough Charles Laws and vocalist Charlene Fitzpatrick, Cary constructs a well-paced program of adventurous but chordal-based jazz and he displays a fairly original voice on piano. This is a strong first step for the talented pianist.
