MUSIC REVIEW BY Hobart Taylor, KUCI.org

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

This Chicago based saxophonist/composer swings with ease and authenticity. Joined in a quintet format featuring the elucidating Victor Garcia on trumpet, the music often has latin rhythms, but owes a lot to be-bop as well, an 21st century version of the Machito sound. But there are also straight ahead melodies for the ages, like the gorgeous "Untitled Waltz For The Wednesday" which features guest artists Scott Hesse on guitar and Cheryl Wilson, vocals. Check out "Swayed Elements" and the loping "Curve Ball" and then there is the blues "Reflections of Happy" for your nostalgia fix.
