Criss Cross Jazz 1221 CD

J.D. Allen Quartet / Quintet

Pharoah's Children

Available: June 1, 2002

On his Criss Cross debut, Pharoah's Children, 29-year-old Detroit-born saxophonist J.D. Allen brings his own perspective to the aesthetic rumblings that stamped middle '60s jazz music.

Boasting an open, richly textured tone, a meticulous, thoughtful approach, and a definitive sense of time, Allen interacts continuously with pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Gene Jackson over a stimulating hour of original music. On three titles as guest, the great new trumpeter Jeremy Pelt.
