Album Review
Reviewed 2014-12-23 
– General Description: Saxophone. Drums. That’s it – proving that less is sometimes more. Wilson and Nash do not leave melody behind. There are two Ellington classics – “Caravan” and “The Mooche” – plus Ornette Coleman’s “Happy House”, two different medleys of Monk tunes, Eddie Harris’ “Freedom Jazz Dance,” Fats Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz” and a closer of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Woody ’N’ You” (also three Wilson originals). “Black Gold ” is Wilson’s tribute to Pittsburgh’s cultural heritage and iconic sports teams, the bluesy “RCJG" pays homage to jazz masters Ron Carter and Jimmy Giuffre. Definitely worth a listen.

– Track Reviews:
1. (5:17) Caravan - medium-fast; you can barely hear the percussion beginning for about 23 seconds, rolling percussion behind mostly pizzicato sax (Juan Tizol, Duke Ellington, Irving Mills)
2. ***(5:40) The Mooche - comfortable; sexy sax calling like at The Cotton Club, spare percussion (Duke Ellington, Irving Mills)
3. (4:06) Rcjg - moderate sax, fast percussion, abrupt ending (Steve Wilson)
4. ***(5:33) Monk Medley Pt 1 (Ask Me Now, Evidence) - medium-fast; you can barely hear the percussion beginning for about 15 seconds, exploratory percussion behind mostly pizzicato sax, though very fluttery at times (Thelonious Monk)
5. (2:20) Row Twelve - bright; solo sax popping from one note to the next before settling down to a smoother ride then back to popping (Steve Wilson)
6. (4:42) Black Gold - spirited; sounds full compared to the previous track, smoother sound by sax, fuller drums, gets kind of whiny 2/3 in (Steve Wilson)
7. (5:24) Jitterbug Waltz - languid to quick; sax sings a nice little descending tune, then drums start picking the pace up (Thomas "Fats" Waller)
8. (3:45) Freedom Jazz Dance - spirited drum solo (Eddie Harris)
9. ***(4:32) Monk Medley Pt 2 (Bright Mississippi, Four In One) - leisurely; sax plays and drums are barely heard, mostly highhat, towards end drums step in (Thelonious S. Monk)
10. (4:12) Happy House - vigorous drums under bursts of sax (Ornette Coleman)
11. (3:17) Woody 'n' You - animated but drum solos are quieter in volume than expected, ends abruptly (Dizzy Gillespie)
