Disc review

The Chet Doxas Quartet’s second album builds on the accomplishments of their highly acclaimed 2007 debut, Sidewalk Etiquette. The interaction between saxophonist and composer Chet Doxas, bassist Zack Lober and drummer Jim Doxas has been honed by years of familiarity. The new member, guitarist Ben Charest, sounds like he has been playing with the group for years, contributing beautiful solo statements and accompaniment for Doxas’ incisive work on tenor on this program of eight original compositions, each of which shows off Doxas’ valuing of fresh approaches to group communication – the essence of jazz.
