(Saxophonist with all originals that flow in pretty much more of a bop-ish style approach).
(Chicago-based vibraphonist with a bass and drum trio format doing a set of originals and other jazz tunes, with an emphasis placed on swing, but not your fathers Milt Jackson swing).
(Pianist featuring a quartet that has improvisational freedom while still making use of the tools of the jazz tradition, making for seven originals and a few interpretations of some classics).
(Saxophonist/NEA Jazz Master leads a quintet featuring an eclectic set with an emphasis on free collective improvising).
(An intergenerational collaboration between Grammy Award-winning trumpeter and new piano star on the modern jazz horizon for quartet and duo formats, bridging traditional and contemporary sounds together with swinging assurance).
(Pianist debuting a five-piece band that features all originals that explore a mixture of straight-ahead jazz, fusion and funk).
- Critical Jazz Review: "A most impressive outing, an ebb and flow that is nuanced yet never pretentious. Stellar!"
(Saxophonist performing all originals that focuses on ballads and intimate compositions).
(Re-mixed from the original Sackville analog tapes, this is the first issue on CD of this album from the saxophonist delivering the goods on a ’78 quartet session).
