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
Theo Hill - Interstellar Adventures Theo Hill accelerates full speed ahead to navigate steadily away from the known and familiar into the uncharted depths of modern collective improvisation.
Nick Finzer - No Arrival Trombonist Nick Finzer's got a round, warm sound throughout – a well-blown approach to his instrument that comes on with all the rich colors of a classic player. - Dusty Groove
