Criss Cross Jazz 1392 CD

David Binney

The Time Verses

Available: February 15, 2017

For his eighth date for Criss Cross as a leader or co-leader, alto saxophonist-composer David Binney documents the quartet with which he most frequently works in New York City (pianist Jacob Sacks, bassist Eivind Opsvik, and drummer Dan Weiss) for the first time since the 2009 recording Aliso (Criss 1322 CD).

It's an episodic, thematically cohesive, 65-minute suite on which Binney and his upper-echelon bandmates solo through the shifting moods and environments -- tracking his responses to the diurnal cycle -- with characteristic inspiration and derring-do.
