Description
When he took first place in 2011's Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, Kris Bowers wowed a panel of judges that included the elite pianists Ellis Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, and Jason Moran. Among his collaborators on this multifaceted, engaging release, one of the best jazz CDs of 2014, are vocalist Chris Turner on the soulful "WonderLove" and singer/songwriter José James on the lovely ballad "Ways of Light."

"Bowers has pruned his virtuosic improvisations to reveal more melodic cogency. The disc also shows Bowers' gifts as a composer, capable of infusing jazz with rock, R&B and hip-hop on such pieces as the dynamic 'Wake the Neighbors,' featuring Adam Agati's searing guitar riffs, and the evocative 'Drift,' which showcases Casey Benjamin and Kenneth Whalum III's intertwining saxophone passages…. The four vocal-centered compositions—'TheProtester,' 'Forget-er,' 'Wonderlove,' and 'Ways of Light'—all have the potential of becoming early 21st-century jazz staples."—Jazz Times
