Michele Hendricks' second recording as a leader finds her both reinforcing her roots in bebop and stretching out a bit. With such fine musicians as pianist David Leonhardt, trombonist Slide Hampton, trumpeter Claudio Roditi and tenorman David Newman, Hendricks explores such diverse numbers as "What's Going On," "Honeysuckle Rose," "Just In Time," "Sassy Strut" and two of her own originals. She also shares the spotlight with her notable father Jon Hendricks on a blazing version of "Everybody's Boppin'."
