Timeline is an album by the American jazz group Yellowjackets, released in 2013. With the departure of bassist Jimmy Haslip in 2012, pianist Russell Ferrante is the sole original member, more than three decades after the band's debut recording Yellowjackets (Warner Bros, 1981) set the ball rolling. That said, saxophonist Bob Mintzer has been onboard 22 years and drummer Will Kennedy 14. Not for nothing does the twenty second studio recording sound every bit a Yellowjackets offering—and a fine one at that. New bassist Felix Pastorius has been touring with the band for over a year and in quiet fashion makes the bass chair his own. Founding pianist/keyboardist Russell Ferrante, with longtime members saxophonist Bob Mintzer and drummer Will Kennedy, eventually chose Felix Pastorius, son of the mighty Jaco, and a seasoned performer in his own right. (On a number of tracks here, he plays his father's bass, loaned to him by its owner, Metallica's Robert Trujillo.) A Rise in the Road provides longtime Yellowjackets' fans plenty, but more importantly, it delivers a bracing new approach and a renewed sense of swinging adventure. Produced by Ferrante, Mintzer and Kennedy, A Rise In The Road stands shoulder-to-shoulder with their 21 previous efforts. ''It's about the challenges that people face in their lives and whatever path they are on: It's not always smooth sailing, it's not always a level road,'' explains Ferrante, with regards to the project's meaning. ''Certainly, over the 32 years that we've been a band, we've had things come up, challenges such as musicians that have left the band, business people, relationships that you have built over the years. Things come to an end, and you have to meet the challenge and keep going forward.'' -------- Highly Recommended!!!
