"Guitarist David Eastlee, rather than merely copying the past or
bringing back the old repertoire, on Forward Motion introduces
seven new songs that bring bebop into the 21st century.
Reverse The Charges has such a catchy melody that it
should become a standard.
On Forward Motion Sam Most leaves his flute
in the case and sticks to his underrated cool-toned
tenor-sax, adding to the appeal of this atmospheric set.
Like every top jazz musician, David Eastlee uses
the best of the past to create new and enjoyable music."
Author of nine jazz books including Jazz On Film, Trumpet Kings,
Bebop and History Of Recorded Jazz 1917-76
