A common thread runs through the music played by Chuck Redd and his colleagues on this marvelous recording that, in the words of the accomplished vibraphonist/drummer himself, "is sewn into jazz from the beginning of the art form." To swing, to play melodically, highlight the beauty of a great song, to infuse the music with a blues feeling and consistently strive for honesty and excellence are the elements that Redd feels connects the music that he makes today with all the many great sounds of jazz that have come before it.
