Whew! One of the ultimate ‘why me' stories gets turned into a jazz song cycle that has a heavy duty egghead bent to it's presentation but in the end, comes across as a theatrical presentation. A parable for these times? Could easily be. The cat behind it is a jazzbo that fearlessly goes his own way and could easily lose his way as an art head---but he doesn't. A perfect set to sit down and listen to when you want to clear the decks, everything about it is well played and written and will never leave you in the dust no matter how much independence it shows. Loomis finds that delightful sweet spot where art and commerce can merge seamlessly.
