Criss Cross Jazz 1322 CD

David Binney

Aliso

Available: February 15, 2010

For his fourth Criss Cross leader date, alto saxophonist-composer David Binney convenes his primary New York working quartet of the 00s (pianist Jacob Sacks, bassist Eivind Opsvik and drummer Dan Weiss), adds to the mix guitar hero Wayne Krantz, with whom he works frequently in an electronica-oriented group, and augments the proceedings with several appearances by British pianist-composer John Escreet, a frequent partner in recent years.

The leader plays with deep emotion and the concision of an old master; it's as strong a date as any in Binney's now sizable discography.
