Trombonist Jimmy Knepper teams up with a strong supporting cast (tenor saxophonist Ralph Moore, pianist Dick Katz, bassist George Mraz and drummer Mel Lewis) for fresh renditions of four standards (including “All Through the Night” and a swinging “This Time the Dream’s on Me”), plus two of the leader’s originals on this Criss Cross set. The music is essentially straight-ahead hard bop, but Knepper’s continually surprising solos uplift the music.
