Hangin’ Five


David Sills
(Resurgent Music RM112)


Despite his youth, Sills has a relaxed style and creates solos that take their time. Teamed up with pianist Cecilia Coleman, bassist Tom Warrington, drummer Sherman Ferguson and (on a few songs) his teacher, altoist Gary Foster, Sills is showcased on a very impressive program… In fact, all ten performances are memorable in their own way and worthy of several listens. This CD is worth it for straight-ahead jazz fans to go out of their way to acquire. – Scott Yanow (more)
