Melvin Rhyne • Classmasters



Notes:
Melvin Rhyne's latest offering, his sixth for Criss Cross Jazz, finds him once again in the company of guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Kenny Washington with tenor saxophone sensation Eric Alexander on hand.
Serving up a savory and filling plate of grooves, Rhyne and crew move freely between the blues and bebop, with a few choice originals thrown in for good measure.

Review by Al Campbell:
Organist Melvin Rhyne's sixth Criss Cross release, Classmasters, finds him once again in the hard swinging company of guitarist Peter Bernstein, saxophonist Eric Alexander, and drummer Kenny Washington. These musicians breeze through two cuts a piece by Michel Legrand and McCoy Tyner, along with the compositions of Coltrane, Monk, Stanley Turrentine, Billie Holiday, and Cole Porter. The Rhyne original "Rhyne, Rhythm and Song" rounds out this modern blues and bebop set.
