Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
Perspective is the debut album by alto saxman Jaleel Shaw a Philly born Berklee educated forward thinking jazz musician who in my humble opinion is one of the more creative alto saxophonists to come along since Kenny Garrett. Shaw has been a fixture on the NYC jazz scene since early 2000 as a member of the Mingus Big Band, he's also done stints with the Ether Orchestra & is currently a member of Roy Haynes band as well as leading his own trio in club appearances around NYC. This album is a highly creative set of modern jazz composed by Shaw with one Coltrane piece Grand Central which in my opinion is a awesome but overlooked bop gem. The album features performances by Shaw's peers on the NYC scene. Pianist Robert Glasper is forging a new jazz piano style based as much on hip hop & soul as much as bop & modern jazz, he shines brightly on this album putting down thoughtful support for the soloists & taking many stand out solos of his own. On guitar is Lage Lund a great new young guitarist with a Bill Evans like command of harmony and chord voicings, Lund also co composed some of the tunes here as well. Bassist Vicente Archer lays down a rock solid foundation with a fat sound & a steady driving swing much like Sam Jones did in Cannonball Adderley's bands. Rounding out the rhythm section is drummer Johnathan Blake also of Philly, he & Shaw have known eachother & played together since they were teenagers, this synergy is evident from the first track Heavy Weight Champion a driving postbop tune that won Shaw an ASCAP young jazz composers award in 2004, this tune features burning solos by alto,guitar & piano & is one of my personal favorites.Read more ›
