Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One of the pleasures of recent jazz has been watching tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin emerge from the pack and establish himself as one of the prime voices of his generation. Unlike many products of Boston's Berklee School of Music, he has developed a robust sound and freewheeling style. Consisting entirely of original compositions, In Pursuit carries through the Latin influences of its first-rate precedessor, Soar, while also engaging in compelling "outside" blowing and thoughtful balladry that showcases his flute playing. McCaslin's interplay with a pair of foils, alto saxophonist Dave Binney (who produced the album) and guitarist Ben Monder, is consistently exciting. Even when he looks back on classic styles, he is looking ahead. --Lloyd Sachs

Product Description

With certain musicians play, you get the feeling that they re on a level above their peers. And what s more, it seems to come easy to them. Current saxophonists that fit this mould include Chris Potter, Joe Lovano and Kenny Garrett. Add Donny McCaslin to that list. Donny McCaslin with his new project In Pursuit delivers an exceptionnal album. Great compositions, great musicianship, great soloists. With McCaslin, the musicians on this record are all first rate and include Dave Binney (as), Ben Monder (g), Scott Colley (b), Antonio Sanchez (dr), and Saturnino Pernel (perc).

5.0 out of 5 stars modern and latinesque October 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Donny McCaslin (tenor s. and flutes) leads a sextet gathering David Binney (alto s.), Ben Monder (guitar), Scott Colley (bass), Antonio Sanchez (drums) and Pernell Saturnino (percussion).

the first song "a brief tale" is a great intro with a tenor-percussion duet.

the third cut, "madonna" is "binneyesque". ("young lion" of alto saxophone david binney is also the producer of this lovely album)

in the fourth cut, "sea of expectancy" ben monder leads the song but it's not "monderesque". mccaslin's flute, and binney's alto extend the music beyond expactations...

after this lovely balad, an electrified and avantgarde cut, "in pursuit" exhibits the energic side of this extremely talented band.

"village natural" sounds like a latin and even like a david sanchez song. latin effects arise from the use of percussion in general and from the melodic lines partly throughout the album. after a short and catchy song "send me a postcard", latin effects make its top in the eighth cut, "fast brazil".

the last song "festival in 3 parts" is a long and modernist farewell.

all are original. all are beautifull. enjoy them...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Club55 product January 9, 2008
By R. Hill
Format:Audio CD
Like Ari Hoenig and Jean-Michel Pilc, McCaslin keeps the time open, but with more than a trio. No head/solo/head forms. Although he sometimes plays 'too many notes', it's in more of a Coltrane wall-of-sound modal way. The compositions give a warm homey feel reminiscent of String Cheese Incident, almost anthem-like, but in a good way. I've only sampled his other albums, but this seems much more successfully impressionistic. My fave of the year so far.
