RadioAction



Alex Graham's swirling lines enliven [Whitney] Ashe's Enlah. Ashe and [Gary] Wang are solid performers, while drummer Jorgensen stands out in the way he ignites the band and keeps finding inventive ways to accent the proceedings.
Cadence Magazine

RadioAction is a musical collective of four musical explorers, each a composer, arranger and bandleader in his own right. They are alto saxophonist Alex Graham, pianist Whitney Ashe, bassist Gary Wang and drummer Matthew Jorgensen. A band for several years now, their depth, group virtuosity, humor and high spirits all but jump out of a set of speakers, whether the song being played is a burner or ballad, a band original or RadioAction's very fresh take on a jazz standard.

With RadioAction, sensitivity shares pride of place with non-stop facility. Every extroversion is balanced by a tune steeped in mystery, as the band's intensity and collective inquisitiveness match its unbreachable vitality. And RadioAction thrives on the benefits of teamwork, with fascinating ideas constantly developing beneath the music's surface, enriching every song. For a band carrying forward the torch of the masters of modern "mainstream" jazz, and for a CD that boldly declares that musical creativity is not regulated by age limits or speed limits, this is where to turn.
