Get swept off your feet by the spicy rythms, luscious orchestrations and groovy compositions.
On ''Subtext'' guitarist Steve Khan leads a sizzling team of Ruben Rodriguez/bass, Dennis Chambers/drums, Marc Quinone s/perc and Bobby Allende/congas through some Latinized takes of post bop tunes as well as his own wonderful compositions. With guest Randy Brecker on flugelhorn, the band grooves on a fluid reading of Ornette Coleman's ''Bird Food'' while Roby Mounsey's keyboards provide red meat for Kahn's fluid soloing on ''Blue Subtext'' and the spicy salsa-ed ''Heard.'' Some rich and luscious orchestrations frame Khan's energetic pickings on the bopping take of Freddie Hubbard's ''Baraka Sasa'' and the expressive reading of Wayne Shorter's ''Infant Eyes.'' A festive ''Cada Gota De Mar'' mixes Khan's clean lines with Gil Goldstein's accordion, some hip coro and Mariana Ingold's ethereal voice. Just as invigorating is a celebrative reading of Thelonious Monk's ''Hackensack'' leading to a sensuous ''bait and Switch'' that closes the enticing album with confidence and style.
