CD Reviews

The Golson Touch
nadav haber | jerusalem Israel | 11/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"First lets get some details about this recording: It was recorded in 1983, and featured the tenors of Golson and Pharoah Sanders, Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums. An all star session no doubt.
The music has the unmistakable sound of Benny Golson's arrangements, which I always liked. The playing by Sanders is completely in the hard-bop tradition, as is DeJohnette's. The rest are of course natural hard-boppers.
Since the album is dedicated to the late great John Coltrane, the music chosen and the style of performance seems as a tribute to Coltrane's 50's recordings.
There are no other surprises - every one plays great, with controlled intensity and original ideas. The only drawback for me is the recording sound - I prefer the 50's and 60's studio sound to that of the 80's. Other than that it's a five point CD."
