It would have been a challenge for any pianist to follow those fireworks, but Larry Willis brought some of his own. Leading a quartet featuring the Kiev-born, Israeli-based alto saxophonist Robert Anchipolovsky, Willis and friends played various standards, including “Milestones,” “Rhythm-a-Ning” and Herbie Hancock’s “I Have a Dream,” as well as his own stirring “Ethiopia.” Willis is well known in the States for his many solo and sideman appearances, but the revelation on this night was Anchipolovsky, whose big, bright sound and strongly swinging, on-top-of-the-beat solos revealed the influence of one of his teachers, Phil Woods.
