Doin’ it right now

Von Freeman is a tough tenor player, with a very distinctive, plummy sound, that gets pretty raw and abrasive when he turns up the heat. This is mainly straight-ahead jazz, albeit with a few avant-garde passages, and is essentially a showcase for Freeman, with the huge booming sound of Sam Jones’s bass driving everything along. The highlight is the title track, which seriously burns: this is the real thing with no frills.
