Chicago-based trumpeter Pharez Whitted follows his 2010 return from a 14-year recording hiatus with a fantastic new effort titled For The People. Whitted again surrounds himself with a solid lineup that includes Bobby Broom on guitar, Eddi Bayard on saxophones, Dennis Carroll on bass, Ron Perrillo on keys and Greg Artry on drums. The album is comprised entirely of Whitted’s own engaging, original compositions, which in tandem with the high quality of musicianship included here, makes for a top-notch listening experience.
