Stay Cool


The Brent Jensen/David Sills Quartet
(Origin 82403)


“Although many younger players look to the hard-bop of the ’50s and ’60s for inspiration, it’s much less common to find youthful players who reflect the values of the erstwhile “cool school.” But altoist Brent Jensen and tenorist David Sills, two saxophonists inspired by the likes of Paul Desmond, Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh, are among the few.”  – David Franklin, JazzTimes (more)
