Trombonist David Gibson leads the way on his sixth recording at the helm. Boom! is an extremely cool meshing of jazz and funk grooves for a very digable result. Gibson, who wrote all but two tracks on the effort, demonstrates the power and subtlety of his axe in a set that goes through a range of musical moods. The quintet of players on the effort has a cohesive sound that really helps deliver the quality of the writing. The band features trumpeter Josh Evans, pianist Theo Hill, bassist Alex Claffy and drummer Kush Abadey. Gibson is an outstanding player forging some really fresh-sounding and entertaining paths in his music.
