Keith Javors: Mo City Jungle (Zoho) (www.zohomusic.com)
Javors gives the lie to the trite statement that those who canít teach. The young University of North Florida professor leads a piping hot quintet from his piano chair. Like a latter-day Blakey outfit, the listener is witness to searing solo cascading over searing solo -- as if emerging molten from the depths of an active volcano. Dane Baysís alto sound and John Davisís drumming is a typical example of the top-level artistry on hand. Javors is in very good form, contributing high octane performances on the fast numbers and betraying a soft side on originals like ďHigh RoadĒ.
