Aggressive doesn't necessarily mean wild, and somehow (methinks its got to do with drummer Gerald Cleaver) the saxophonist's quintet sustains a daunting finesse while swinging full tilt on the new The Sage. Imagine Miles' Filles De Killimanjaro outfit pumping out some Jazz Messengers' energy. Insiders know that kind of chutzpah is even more visceral on stage, so this gig, with the same musicians from the disc, might be a full-fledged throw down .
