By now there can be no doubt that David Sills has eased into the position of one of LA's top echelon tenor players. On his latest CD, he brings us a group of stellar Southland colleagues, including the presence of the brilliant Gary Foster on alto saxophone. Together these simpatico players work out on a menu of lyrical, well crafted originals and a couple of familiar chestnuts in Prelude To A Kiss and Moon And Sand. Sill's sextet sounds so much in the center of the groove that one might think they're a permanent working group. He and Foster make a great team and earn high marks together.
