CD Reviews

The Kenny Garrett of the tenor
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Rick Margitza is the Kenny Garrett of the tenor. There is no doubt of his musical maturation since his Miles Davis' years. His fire seems somewhat softened. He has his own style of playing immediately recognisable as "Margitza". (Maybe he could improve a bit in story-telling. In that respect he is still behind Branford Marsalis.) With Jeff Gardner, Margitza has found a co-genial partner (reminding me of Liebman/Beirac). The rhythm-group (Danielsson and Vidacovich) is doing an excellent job. "Game of Chance" is a nice recording. For a live-recording, however, the band plays rather a bit too controlled. The brakes are rarely let loose, the forms are kept, the last adventure is avoided. Moreover, all the tunes are structured in the same way: sax-solo first, piano second etc."
