DAN WILKINS ENSEMBLE/Jnana Vijnana: This bunch of up and coming New York jazzbos takes inspiration from past jazzbos as they stop and reflect on eastern kinds of mind sets and comes forth with something more than chamber jazz. Not egghead stuff, this is easy going stuff that goes to the right of smooth jazz almost making itself thinking man’s jazz. Perfect stuff for sitting down and enjoying, it’s easy to listen to but there’s nothing easy about it. Proof the new generation is lining up to take it’s place in queue. Solid work that’ll grab your ear.
