Criss Cross Jazz 1274 CD
Available: February 22, 2006
A member of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and
the Wynton Marsalis Septet for more than a decade,
Victor Goines - who also runs the Jazz Department
at the New York's Juilliard School of Music - hasn't had much
time to present his own vivid musical vision.
Like his three previous solo dates, Goines' Criss Cross
leader debut is a swinging affair.
The leader, a clarinet master of long standing, also focuses here on the tenor
and soprano saxophone, showcasing a swaggering, romantic approach to
the former and a pure, melodic concept on the latter.
The program mixes jazz standards and pungent originals; propelling the
proceedings is the top-notch rhythm section you expect to hear on a
Criss Cross date - pianist Peter Martin,
LCJO bassist Carlos Henriquez,
and drummer Greg Hutchinson.
