Journey Together


David Sills
(Naxos 86023-2)


From the head of Lenny Tristano’s “317 East 32nd Street” I felt encouraged that this would be a well-behaved mainstream outing by the 28 year old tenor player. I was right. Supported by bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz and guitarist Larry Koonse of the Los Angeles Jazz Quartet ( Look to the East Naxos Jazz 86029-2) along with former Bill Evans drummer Joe La Barbera and pianist Alan Broadbent, late of Charlie Haden’s Quartet West, Sills quietly thrills on this collection of originals and standards and not so standard standards. – C. Michael Bailey (more)
