Yearnings

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
There's something to be said for gently swinging, decorous, small-ensemble jazz. Quite a lot to be said, actually -- in a marketplace dominated by overbearing, thousand-notes-a-minute show-offs. Artists who can make their musical statements concisely, and without bombast, are to be treasured. Of course, there's also something to be said for energy, and if there's one thing occasionally lacking on this genuinely lovely album, that's what it is. Supported by an ace rhythm section consisting of pianist John Sheridan, bassist Dave Stone, and drummer Tony DeNicola, clarinetists Bobby Gordon and Bob Wilber who switches to soprano sax occasionally, deliver this beautiful program...

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
There's something to be said for gently swinging, decorous, small-ensemble jazz. Quite a lot to be said, actually -- in a marketplace dominated by overbearing, thousand-notes-a-minute show-offs. Artists who can make their musical statements concisely, and without bombast, are to be treasured. Of course, there's also something to be said for energy, and if there's one thing occasionally lacking on this genuinely lovely album, that's what it is. Supported by an ace rhythm section consisting of pianist John Sheridan, bassist Dave Stone, and drummer Tony DeNicola, clarinetists Bobby Gordon and Bob Wilber who switches to soprano sax occasionally, deliver this beautiful program of standards and originals with all the panache and grace you could ask for, if not always all of the oomph you might want. On elegant numbers like the Irving Berlin composition "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody," and the regretful "I Ain't Got Nobody," they weave their melodic variations like fine lace around the sturdy backing of the rhythm section, and even on such hackneyed material as "Doodle Doo Doo," they manage to shed new light on the material with their graceful duo improvisations. They're not going to change the way you listen to old-school jazz, but then, they're not trying to. Recommended.
