Richard Cole's latest recording showcases the versatile saxophonist in like-minded and stellar company. With trumpeter Randy Brecker again making an appearance, Shade is instantly compelling. Both rollicking and serene, Shade varies the program, from the fusion-informed "Red Hat" to the 50's mainstream sound of pianist Bill Anschell's "Lana." Cole also supplies modern impressions of "Beautiful Love" and "I Could Write a Book" while showcasing several dynamic originals including the opening track "A Shade for Joe," a nod to the great Joe Henderson. Shade also features pianists Randy Porter & John Hansen, bassists Chuck Deardorf & Jeff Johnson, drummers Gary Hobbs & John Bishop, among others.
