The Future Was Yesterday

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
After a powerful drum solo opens, The Future Was Yesterday, the debut album for Chicago/Paris sax player Brad Wheeler, the sax kicks in and one immediately is taken by the sound of a developed John Coltrane. As the album progresses, Wheeler takes more of his own direction and relies less on sheer emulation of the 'Trane.

As he goes through his solos, one comes to the understanding that the notes have to be where he puts them; they simply can't go elsewhere.
