Think Before You Think

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
The main reason to obtain Think Before You Think is the prominently featured tenor sax of Joe Lovano, who was a year away from recording for Blue Note when the acoustic post-bop/hard bop session was done in 1989. This isn't to take anything away from leader Bill Stewart -- a competent, swinging drummer -- or his other sidemen on the album: acoustic pianist Mark Cohen an admirer of Bill Evans and Chick Corea and the distinguished, risk-taking bassist Dave Holland.
