JUSTIN VARNES/Survival Instinct: The Evilution of the Pack:  A jazz drummer with enough beats in his kit to be one of these cats that fuses the past with he future, he sounds old school until you give a good listen and hear he hears tomorrow with all acuity.  Leading an ensemble that plays right in synch with his vision, this nu modern jazz is great sitting down jazz that knows a few more than all the right moves.  It full of Blue Note today if Al Lion was still in charge.
