CD Reviews

Sonny Criss's quintessal recording!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sonny Criss displays his finest saxophone playing ever on this incredible recording. Starting from the Horace Tapscott composition, Isle of Celia, through to the burning Crisscraft, Criss is in complete command of his masterful jazz playing. His solo on Blues of My Heart is an excursion into the dark, blue side of his emotions which Sonny has always been honest enough to reveal, and his interpretation of the classic All Night Long is further proof of Criss's special abilties to capture the essence of a song, from the inside out. This recording, made just a few years prior to Sonny's untimely death in 1977, is further proof that Sonny Criss stands alone as the premier jazz alto saxophonist of our time."
This might be the finest album in the Sonny Criss catalog... | Huntington, WV | 05/04/1999

"Sonny Criss's story is quite a sad one. One of many sad stories I know, but the depth of soul which can be felt on these tracks certainly point out what an overlooked and under-appreciated alto saxophonist that Sonny Criss was. If you are looking for a deeply soulful album with blue-mood aplenty this one is hard to beat."
The greatest altoist criss

"I think Sonny Criss is one of great underground musician of all time and a talented bop altoist influenced by Charlie Parker. But He has his own heavier sound. I love to hear Crisscraft a bebop blues, All Night Long a haunting melody, Blues In My Heart morchismo, I'm from Seoul Korea. Thank you so much."
