Editorial Reviews

Good things come to those who wait. Those waiting for the debut recording of drummer/composer Johnathan Blake, an important part of the New York jazz community as an adept accompanist and collaborator, should be completely satisfied with his new CD The Eleventh Hour (Sunnyside, Feb. 28, 2012). The program of forward leaning originals and two fantastic covers was performed by an impressive cast, including keyboardist Kevin Hayes, bassist Ben Street, saxophonists Jaleel Shaw, Tim Warfield and Mark Turner, along with special guests trumpeter Tom Harrell, harmonica player Gr‚goire Maret and pianist Robert Glasper.

5.0 out of 5 stars List worthy! September 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I like what the previous reviewer said. He obviously knows his stuff. However, instead of saying, "horn heavy", I'd say, Heavy Horns! I loved the CD. It has a live vibe to it and all the horn players bring it! Tom Harrell has a very cool snakey minor blues that is really fun, but there are plenty of other highlights. There is much passion on display and you can tell a lot of love and thought went into this project. The hook-up between Johnathan, Ben and Kevin is special. I'd love to hear them go trioing. This is inspiring music and it's in very good hands with a major talent like Johnathan Blake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent, horn-heavy debut January 8, 2013
By monyouk
Format:Audio CD
from a drummer frequently called for to contribute in his tasteful, innovative style. Perhaps a bit too reverential to jazz tradition, most of the compositions - including seven originals - are arranged for quintet format, with Kevin Hays' fine piano play and Ben Street muscular anchor on double bass, augmented by tenorist Mark Turner and altoist Jaleel Shaw taking turns on saxophones.
Song highlights include #2 'rio's dream' dominated by said horns and impressive take on the keyboard (here and elsewhere), a heartfelt treatment of Randy Newman's #4 'dexter's tune' (originally written for Awakenings: Music from the Motion Picture 1990) courtesy of Turner's brooding tenor, and bandleader Blake's tricky, invigorating rendition of the classic 'evidence' by T. Monk being played backward on #9 'clues', with an integrated solo provided by the drummer.

Noted guests are audible on several tunes: Grégoire Maret brings his expressive harmonica sound on the cool funk title track #1 that also features Robert Glasper on rhodes. Both of them engage in a modern dialogue on the wistful concluding song #10 'canvas' by Glasper (the eponymous title of the pianist's 2005 album Canvas at Blue Note). Seasoned trumpeter Tom Harrell interprets his own theme on the driving bop piece #3 'blue news' and reappears as flugelhornist on the optimistic, Latin-influenced #5 'time to kill', with Blake unleashing a sizzling drum solo on a locked down groove.
Tracks #6-8 strike me as if they have been cut more or less from the same cloth, offering some postbop restlessness as well as dark-hued starkness utilizing a tenor sax duo (Turner and Tim Warfield) on #8 'no left turn'. Total time: 68.02 min.
