A highly emotion-filled and optimistic collection, "Emotion and Intellect" gives the listener eight selections of very exceptional music! Everything about this CD adventure in sound is excellent. The selections are long, vibrant, alive with feeling, different! For instance, "Emotion and Intellect" has a playing time of 14:30, and "Dealing with Swing" has a playing time of 8:37, and each is different and magnificent in concept. Ron Bosse is a master of the guitar, and he is backed by fellow musicians Will Hudgins on vibes and percussion, Rob Egan on drums, Dave Barraza on tenor saxophone, and Paul Beaudry on bass. Gary Thomas performs tenor saxophone on tracks 2 and 5. All compositions on this CD are by Ron Bosse. As a vibes performer, Will Hudgins is one of the best and this CD showcases his elegant touch! Each musician performs at top form. Each plays with an individual voice, and together, they are a great moment in jazz music with this CD.
