Yellowjackets

A Rise In The Road

A Rise In The Road, the Yellowjackets’ second Mack Avenue Records offering, is indeed an appropriate title for a time-honored jazz ensemble that has never been fearful of facing newer musical horizons, not to mention the myriad challenges of life itself.

Cohearence plays out as a multifaceted documentation of how far the once fusion band has come. With founding member/pianist/keyboardist Russell Ferrante and longtime reeds player Bob Mintzer and drummer Will Kennedy alongside a brand-new virtuoso electric bassist, Australia-born Dane Alderson, the Yellowjackets cover a range of jazz flavors, including a rousing Weather Report jazz fusion vibe, a swinging switch-up on John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps,” a moving rendition of a folk song classic, a funky soul-jazz excursion and a chamber jazz-like grace in the album end-song, “Coherence.”
