Description

All About Jazz once stated, "Andrew Rathbun is an artist who takes chances with his recordings. You don't hear any paint-by-the-numbers jazz discs from him." This release proves again how accurate this statement is.

Canadian-born tenor saxophonist Rathbun has established himself as one of the most compelling voices of American jazz scene today both as performer and as composer. While the composer's socio-political awareness is manifested in the tune titles, the music which is intellectually emotional speaks louder to our consciousness.

"Reedman Andrew Rathbun's recording dates - dependably rhapsodic, songful, rational - each have plausible logic and worked-out thematic." - Fred Bouchard, Downbeat on 'Numbers & Letters' (SCCD31781)

Personnel: Andrew Rathbun (tenor saxophone), Tim Hagans (trumpet), Gary Versace (piano), Jay Anderson (bass), Bill Stewart (drums)
