Animation - Imagination [Blue Note, 1999]
In the spirit of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew (and his late work in hip-hop rhythms like Tutu), Tim Hagans created this stew of trumpet lines over a bass and drum backbone. Some listeners may get turned off by Hagans' super-hot blowing, but the album offers some nice grooves. The title track is a flashy fusion trip, and "Love's Lullaby" is a pleasant break from the frenetic pace of the rest of the disc. [Tim Sheridan]
...TIM HAGANS IS " THE MOST INVENTIVE TRUMPETER , OUT THERE ! "
