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.
Tom Tallitsch - Wheelhouse Tom kicks it up strongly here right from the very first note – leading a tight quintet through some beautifully-written tunes of his own - Dusty Groove
Lauren Sevian - Bliss 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
