The Michael Carvin Experience is a great experience. Led by drummer Michael Carvin, Flash Forward is a outstanding recording of a master musician collaborating with talented lineup of next gen players. The fantastic quartet includes¬†Yayoi Ikawa on piano, Keith Loftis on saxophone and Jansen Cinco on bass. The group’s performance is a rewarding journey through standard and not-so-standard tunes by Bobby Hutcherson, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Horace Silver, Joseph Cosma. More than a mere reciting of the tried-and-tried again, you really hearing the players exploring, listening to each other and laying down some really great music in the process. Carvin and company really provide music lovers a great service with this effort.
