The Hymn

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David R. Adler
While it didn't see release until 2001, this quintet date was recorded in 1993 at New York's Birdland, which at the time was still on 105th Street it would soon move to 44th, near Times Square. Joining trumpet legend Clark Terry in the front line is the young alto saxophonist Jesse Davis, who is quite at home with the bop-oriented material at hand.

A worthy addition to a lengthy discography.
