Terry Silverlight's latest project as a bandleader delivers an assortment of modern jazz through all original compositions. A seasoned roster of guest musicians join Silverlight on Wild!! Collectively, Silverlight's compositions encourage each personality to illuminate -- bringing further depth to the recording. Hiram Bullock's gritty guitar work on Sparky J's puts things in motion for 59 minutes of listening enjoyment. Silverlight showcases his inventive skills early on with a crafty drum intro leading into Pugnacious. Edgar Winter's bouncing vocals on Brown 'N Serve provide a straight forward approach to this ever-evolving jazz recording. Will Lee's smooth bass lines lure the listener to the spaciousness of Windsurfing and Mike Ricchiuti's maneuvering of the ivories suggest a hint of the sun's gleam upon the sails. John Clark and David Mann's horn section effortlessly supports the subtle breeze behind the sails. Chuck Loeb's artistic guitar leads add a stamp of approval to the CD's title track ... Wild!!
