All Music Guide

Flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny celebrates the beauty, terrain, and expansiveness of his adopted home in the Pacific Northwest. With ongoing decades of touring, Matheny recorded his 12th album with a trio of longtime Seattle collaborators - pianist Bill Anschell, bassist Phil Sparks, and drummer Mark Ivester - with saxophonist Charles McNeal joining them from Las Vegas. Performing several inspired classics such as Tadd Dameron's "On a Misty Night," Coltrane's "After the Rain," and Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman" adds depth and clarity to Matheny's six original compositions and "Humble Origins" by Bill Anschell. "Perfect Peaches," a lyrical bossa, "Dark Eyes," a seductive noir ballad, "Evergreen Girl," a soul-jazz shuffle, "Bourdain," a memorial elegy for a great man, "The Lonesome Road," a weary traveler's lament, and "Cascadia," the evocative title track, combine to create an emotionally expressive set that will be familiar to Matheny's many followers across the country.

"Dmitri Matheny has ample talent, executing beautiful lines with a flawless warm tone. An excellent performer on gentle ballads and bop scorchers alike." - Rolling Stone
