Description

Saxophonist Dylan Cramer pays tribute to Sonny Criss - with whom he studied the alto - on this 1997 recording. He plays five of Sonny's original compositions along with five other songs he recorded during his career. He is joined by another prolific bebop player - bassist Leroy Vinnegar who played with Sonny back in the '70s. Personnel: Dylan Cramer (alto saxophone), Ron Johnston (piano), Leroy Vinnegar (bass), John Nolan (drums) "As did Criss, Cramer plays the alto using clean, vigorous lines, often of breathtaking technical brilliance Dylan Cramer has a song to sing and knows how to sing it." - Coda Magazine "Dylan Cramer has absorbed the blues-rich Criss sound into his own appealing style An engaging set by a fine alto player. Dylan Cramer is a talent worth seeking out." - Jazz 52nd Street "Cramer sounds the way one might imagine Stan Getz would have sounded if he had swapped his tenor for an alto." - Scotland On Sunday "Dylan Cramer's interpretations are pensive and intriguing throughout This is good jazz that deserves as much respect as it gives." - The Jazz Review
