On his Criss Cross debut tenor saxophonist Stacy Dillard projects the intelligence and fire that have made him a major force in New York hardcore jazz over the last decade.
Playing tenor and soprano saxophone with great facility and no cliches, Dillard leads a strong quintet of young masters – Orrin Evans, piano; Craig Magnano, guitar; Ryan Berg, bass; Jeremy ‘Bean’ Clemons, drums – through a set of meaty originals, bluesy, soulful, and swinging, reinforcing his ever-growing stature as a must-hear voice.
