Nine years after his last SteepleChase set, the underrated trumpeter Idrees Sulieman
reunited with Per Goldschmidt
(who doubles on tenor and baritone) and pianist Horace Parlan
for another fine straight-ahead date. With bassist Mads Vinding
and drummer Billy Hart
completing the quintet, the talented players stretch out on "Groovin' High," a couple of obscurities and three group originals. Five days short of his 62nd birthday, Idrees Sulieman
was still in fine form for this record.
