John knows too well how to be an important part in the making of his music but never trying to over-shadow or out play his sidemen. John features a congregation of great sidemen: Bob Malach on tenor sax, Bob Gallo and Dean Brown on guitar, Jerry Brooks on six string bass, Jeff Haynes doing percussion, and Brian Charette on piano. John's playing comes across as both self-assured and with an open-minded viewpoint. When asked about the songs on his release, John replies, "The songs on the CD have many different styles of Jazz: from Latin Jazz to Fusion, to Contemporary, and Traditional." We loved the diversity of forms expresses on this release and would recommend picking it up. Enjoy the beats!
