Critics hail it as a masterful mix of improvisation and synergy, a "pot set to simmer" with memorable solos and engaging interplay.

Track Highlights:

    The title track "Groove Street" sets the tone with a shuffle beat and an angular melody.
    "Overlap" and "Straight Ahead" by Bob Mintzer showcase engaging improvisations.
    The trio's take on Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes" and Eddie Harris' "Cold Duck Time" adds a fresh perspective to these classics.
