Sculpted with absolute precision but loose and swinging in feel, the music never turns fragmentary or episodic, even the shortest piecees are fully realized, composed and uncluttered. Varner plays a gracious role as leader, offering terrific opportunities for the horns to make characterful statements, without letting anybody blemish their book by spinning out rhetoric.
