Composer, educator, and Keyboard contributor George Colligan steps out from behind his postbop piano pedestal with this rollicking jazz-rock record. Featuring Colligan on organ and assorted keyboards, the album explodes with metric and melodic combustion. Check out his angular organ explorations on “Keeping Pace” and “Song for Obama,” as well as his simmering, Herbie Hancock-inspired synth work on the title track. No matter the genre, Colligan continues to inspire and impress. Recommended. (Piloo | georgecolligan.com)

Have rotary simulations gotten good enough that you don't miss a real Leslie at the gig?
