Originals for the Originals
By Michael Zilber
One of seven sax masters being praised - know one, know all. A spirited flight through some potent playing. Lively, winding keys, soulful sax, crazy taps and dancing bass.
The Bay Area saxophonist / composer’s 11th recording as leader or co-leader is a labor of love that reflects both his keen sense of the history of the music and his infinite capacity to SWING. Citing the profound influence of seven sax masters - Michael Brecker, Sonny Rollins, Dave Liebman, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, John Coltrane and Paul Desmond - Zilber, along with New York greats Dave Kikoski on piano, bassist James Genus, and drummer Clarence Penn, has fashioned a potent homage that is infused with all-knowing nods to his heroes.
