Absolutnie AUDIOFILSKA

Bennie Wallace is unlike any tenor saxophonist, often alternating between a soulful, fat tone (which is very similar to Ben Webster's approach) and sudden unpredictable jumps (no doubt inspired by alto saxophonist Eric Dolphy). Joined by an outstanding rhythm section consisting of pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Lewis Nash, Wallace explores favorites from the swing and bop eras, with his bandmates providing a solid anchor underneath his flights. Two gems from the pen of Billy Strayhorn, the rhapsodic "My Little Brown Book" and the fragile ballad "A Flower Is a Lovesome Thing," stand in a class by themselves with Wallace's fresh interpretations. Both theLatin-flavored arrangement of "Love for Sale" and Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma" pack a powerful punch, while "Milestones" (the earlier one which Miles Davis recorded for Savoy, though it was actually composed by John Lewis) takes a far more adventurous route than typically heard. This excellent session demonstrates a mature artist with a very distinct sound, which should be the ultimate goal of every jazz musician. One minor shortcoming of this release is the label's puzzling failure to list either the songs or the supporting musicians on the outside of the package. This highly recommended CD is one of Bennie Wallace's best sessions of his long, very fruitful career. — Ken Dryden Tenorman Bennie Wallace's finest studio set in a while and featuring one of the best quartets working in jazz today with the magnificent Mulgrew Miller on piano and a superb program of smoky ballads and standards. Review: "...a really beautiful and compelling release by a saxist at the height of his powers" -- Jazz Review UK Review: "A sure candidate for the year-end top ten lists; a must have disc for fans of Dexter, Sonny, The Hawk." -- Dan McClenaghan, American Reporter CD Review
