Time In Place
Ries van Schelven on "Time In Place", "This is an electric album and a brilliant one, but so are all Stern's albums. It all starts off with "Gossip", which has the typical Stern sound, and features the great Michael Brecker on sax. Then on to the title track, a more mellow piece with a nice solo (energized when Stern switches on his overdrive), and featuring Bob Berg on sax. The mood is turned down in "Before You Go", a quality ballad, with some nice acoustic stuff in it - great melodic piece. After that a jazzy Stern signature piece ("No Notice"). And then the centerpiece of the album, "After All". Great composition, great solo (overdrive again man, and a superb build-up). "Four Shades" means jazzy time again - great bass work, and a gem of a solo. "Chromazone" swings, kicks ass, Brecker on the sax, can't get any better then this."
