We gave it a B-

Before Reid gave rock guitar a face-lift in Living Colour, he made arty noise in electric-jazz projects like the Decoding Society. He’s after that jazz edge again here. After a couple of generic party numbers, brainier fun begins as Reid supercharges standards like Monk’s ”Brilliant Corners” with a plugged-in, rockish intensity that skillfully traverses the fusion map. Uneven, but creatively potent.
