CD Reviews

Great Session...
Benjamin P. Patterson | Washington, DC | 01/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...and no wonder. Chris Potter and John Swana burn every tune on this album to cinders. Rarely do you hear a trumpeter improvising as fluidly as this cat. This is one of my two favorite (recent) trumpet-led recording sessions, along with Alexander Sipiagin's Steppin' Zone.This album will make you wince, the playing is so good. Just when you think no trumpet player could follow Chris Potter's performance, John steps in and delivers.A must-have for any jazz/trumpet fan."
Amazing Talent

"John Swana is truly a remarkable trumpet player. Tug of War became one of my favorite recordings after maybe 2 listens. Swana's playing is so fluid and his eigth notes sound remaniscent of Tom Harrell. I would definitely recommend this cd to anybody that wants to hear a great jazz trumpeter who doesn't get the recognition he deserves. Oh, and one more thing: Chris Potter! This guy burns. The chemistry between Swana and Potter is explosive!"
