Christopher White / Press

“A solid listen, full of vibrant style and innovative solos. This album stays mainly in the swing tradition, with cool rhythms working with flowing notation from the horn players. The arrangements are inventive, featuring playful melodies, with a small horn section generating a big band feel from a minimal number of instruments--reminiscent of compositions from the Thad Jones & Mel Lewis big band. Fast-paced tracks like “Black Fly Affair” showcase White's precision and dexterity on the saxophone, while smooth swing ballads like “Snowy Nights” display the emotion of his tone. This album is a complex portrait of a jazz artist who has found and developed his own unique musical personality, hitting that sweet spot between soul and mastery.”

“Mr. White is a very special musician. He plays the clarinet and saxophone very well indeed - he conducts with great skill. He has a real power of communication and is articulate.”

Lukas Foss, composer & conductor
