Editorial Reviews

Dmitry Baevsky is a wonderfully talented young alto saxophonist from St. Petersburg, Russia who has been making his name on the New York City scene since 1996. In the tradition of the great altoists of the 1950s he possesses a sweet yet authoritative sound and complete command of the harmonic intricacies of the modern jazz idiom. He is ably supported by a fabulous band of young players including trumpeter Jeremy Pelt (on four tracks) and pianist Jeb Patton, Dmitry presents a winning program of tunes from the canon including rarities like Clifford Brown's LaRue and Gigi Gryce's Shabozz. This is a superb session that combines hard-driving playing with tender lyricism and establishes Dmitry Baevsky as an exceptional new voice on the alto saxophone. A must have for jazz fans who've been wondering where all the great young alto players are!

Format:Audio CD
"Down With It" is alto saxophonist Dmitry Baevsky's 2nd CD as a leader. But I suspect that this CD on the widely available and first-class Sharp Nine label will serve as his introduction to many listeners. The fascinating story of how Russian born-Baevsky came to America to study music and develop his jazz career is recounted in the literate liner notes by Gilad Edelman, son of Sharp Nine producer, Marc Edelman. But equally interesting is the music on this hard swinging, straight-ahead 2010 date.

Baevsky has clearly been influenced by past and present alto saxophone giants, but at age 33 he has developed his own personal sound, clear and penetrating, dark in the lower registers and brighter up high. His technique is very secure as well, allowing him to handle the fastest tempos with ease, as on the title track by Bud Powell which opens the CD. Every track on the CD is quite impressive as Baevsky improvises on rarely heard tunes from major jazz musicians such as Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Clifford Brown, Gigi Gryce, and Sonny Rollins. Baevsky has clearly immersed himself deeply in the jazz tradition, to the benefit of his listeners. Two attractive standards are included as well, including the medium tempo "I'll String Along With You" which rounds out the CD in a memorable and satisfying way.

Ellington's latin-ish "Mount Harissa" is a highlight. So too are Clifford Brown's "LaRue" and Gigi Gryce's "Shabazz." Baevsky plays with depth and emotion on the ballad, "Last Night When We Were Young." But each listener will find their own favorites among the well-paced and beautifully recorded program.

Baevsky is backed by a top drawer rhythm section of pianist Jeb Patton, bassist David Wong, and drummer Jason Brown.
