Michael Dease - Bonafide Michael Dease just seems to grow and grow with each new record not just in sound and fresh ideas, but also in spirit which is especially the case here, on a set that brings in a few other trombonists to the ensemble! - Dusty Groove
Doug Webb - Fast Friends The tunes are a mix of Webb originals, standards, and bop classics and Doug handles them all with a freshness that's great quick-moving energy that's full of color and life. - Dusty Groove
Art Hirahara - Sunward Bound Once again Hirahara succeeds in
creating a bold impassioned statement that also features significant
and meaningful contributions from saxophonist Donny McCaslin, bassist Linda May Han Oh, and drummer Rudy Royston.
(585) 356-8076 The rhythm core is especially strong, and really helps to give the album a strong sense of focus but then again, with compositions as great as these, they could hardly do anything but. - Dusty Groove
