He Knows My Name

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Jazz was once heavily influenced by gospel music and spirituals, though in the 21st century, many younger players have discarded it for the most part. But tenor saxophonist Gregory Tardy not only embraces his Christian upbringing but devotes this entire CD to music that has lifted up his life. Starting with a powerful rendition of the late Rev. James Cleveland's "Christ the Redeemer," Tardy preaches through his majestic horn, with superb backing from pianist Xavier Davis. The influence of John Coltrane is unmistakable in the passionate take of the spiritual "Lord Revive Us" (though Coltrane never recorded, or likely performed this piece), which adds guest trumpeter Philip ...

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Jazz was once heavily influenced by gospel music and spirituals, though in the 21st century, many younger players have discarded it for the most part. But tenor saxophonist Gregory Tardy not only embraces his Christian upbringing but devotes this entire CD to music that has lifted up his life. Starting with a powerful rendition of the late Rev. James Cleveland's "Christ the Redeemer," Tardy preaches through his majestic horn, with superb backing from pianist Xavier Davis. The influence of John Coltrane is unmistakable in the passionate take of the spiritual "Lord Revive Us" (though Coltrane never recorded, or likely performed this piece), which adds guest trumpeter Philip Dizack and alto saxophonist Riley Bandy. He also explores works by modern composers, including Sharp Radway's snappy "Holy Ghost Fall on Me" and jazz pianist/bandleader Eric Reed's heartfelt miniature "He Cares," the latter an intimate duet by Tardy on clarinet with Davis. The guests are also present on a foot-tapping arrangement of the spiritual "Jordan River" and "Remember Me." If the music in churches would swing as hard as Gregory Tardy's band on this session, attendance would likely improve. Highly recommended!
