Cat Food

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Colorado saxman Bryan Savage has taken a handful of albums to find his true voice, and it's nice to see all the previous promise come to such exciting fruition on the playfully titled Cat Food, which adds a decidedly urban dimension to his proven passionate leanings.

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Colorado saxman Bryan Savage has taken a handful of albums to find his true voice, and it's nice to see all the previous promise come to such exciting fruition on the playfully titled Cat Food, which adds a decidedly urban dimension to his proven passionate leanings. The whimsical album moniker is just one dimension of Savage's approach on the new release, which blends funk with silk, high energy jamming with mouthwatering melodies galore. His new street twist comes courtesy of the Midas guidance of the suddenly ubitquitous Rick Braun, whose production and compositional abilities complement Savage's easy funk and lites out instincts. Also on hand lending wondrous support are the fiery strings of Jeff Golub another Braun charge and Mr. Breezy himself, Peter White. While nearly every cut, including sharp covers of the Commodores' "Night Shift" and Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," rings true and heartfelt, it's the triple collaboration of Savage, White and Braun on the punchy jam "Gotcha" which strikes the hardest and engages the longest. As Savage comes into his own and sneaks away from the crowded sax pack, he should have the foresight to stick with these two genre masters in breaking further career ground.
