I'm All for You

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Place Joe Lovano, one of the premier saxophonists of our day, alongside pianist Hank Jones, bassist George Mraz, and drummer Paul Motian, and then have them dig into memorable ballads, and it would be hard not to come up with a first-rate album. And that's exactly what I'm All for You is: a superb recording that throws light on the leader's maturity and the still-productive brilliance of Jones, a veteran player who has been wowing listeners and fellow players since the 1940s. The mutual admiration between all four musicians is always palpable.

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Bringing to mind a superb mix of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins, I'm All for You finds forward-thinking saxophonist Joe Lovano expertly balancing heartfelt melodicism and cerebral harmonic improvisation. Easily one of Lovano's most listenable endeavors, the ballads-oriented album pulls no punches and simply allows you to sit back and enjoy a master play at his utter best. Joining him is journeyman pianist Hank Jones, who brings his urbane touch to such classic standards as "Don't Blame Me" and "Like Someone in Love." Rounding out the ensemble are longtime Lovano associates bassist George Mraz and drummer Paul Motian, who lend an egoless mentality to the proceedings, helping to emphasize lush group interplay over individual pyrotechnics.
