CD Reviews

ADP | CA | 02/13/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found this CD to be an excellent and satisfying collection of jazz. I didn't think it was "lite" jazz or background music at all. The music and musicians challenged me while still being beautiful. There's edge, so it's not boring or predictable, but it's accessible. The music has something to say.
And, if you are a dancer or dance/jazz fan in the Bay Area and have seen Savage Jazz, you will definitely remember certain pieces to which Reginald Ray-Savage has choreographed. The music and movement are so elegant--well-suited for each other."
Dork is right

"Dork is a poseur who cannot get out of his head and he's right about one thing: his own name."
