For his Criss Cross debut, alto saxophonist David Binney, known for his episodic, long-form recordings, presents a memorable straight-ahead recital.
Addressing nine Binney originals and an original apiece by Duke Ellington and Wayne Shorter, Binney and tenor star Chris Potter, backed by Binney's regular rhythm section, pianist Jacob Sacks, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Dan Weiss, uncork a series of heated, lucid solos and achieve a one-instrument sound on the unisons.
