BlueBari Jam

“Will Scruggs’s second CD as a leader (and first for a widely distributed label, Summit Records) shows tremendous growth. Alternating between baritone and tenor saxes, Scruggs is accompanied by a terrific band, including pianist Brian Hogans, bassist Zack Pride, and drummer Marlon Patton. His furious riff tune “Swingin’ to the Left” suggests a throwback to the early days of bop, and trombonist Wes Funderburk is added for the funky shuffle “BlueBari Jam.”Scruggs’ love of reggae is displayed in his thoughtful arrangement of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” and a surprising duet on soprano with guitarist Sid Wolf of Peter Tosh’s “Till Your Well Runs Dry.” The loping blues “Willy’s Little Men,” adding guitarist Chris Duarte, nicely rounds out this compelling CD.”
