“Saxophonist Antoine Knight returns on his much-anticipated second CD, Walk Da Walk, a project at times smooth, sometimes sassy, frequently funky and always engaging. Knight, whose other career is with the First U.S. Army Division, keeps listeners engaged with an in-the-pocket groove where the unexpected comes as a pleasant surprise – just listen to the wailing guitar solos on the cover track and on Michael McDonald’s “I Keep Forgettin’.” Knight shows his chops on the swinging, traditional jazz track “Smooth Jazz Gone Straight,” and in a trio setting with the lovely and melancholy “Tears of Pain.” The CD includes an interview with the artist and an extended version of the cover tune, “Walk Da Walk.”
““If you’re an emerging artist and going to call your breakthrough recording Walk Da Walk, you better be prepared to do just that—and make sure you deliver on those lofty ambitions. Antoine Knight does this big time with an exciting mix of old school in the pocket soul/funk, sensuous romantic expressions and colorful jazz improvisations. His music proves that he’s comfortable in both traditional and smooth jazz worlds, and can slide over effortlessly between gospel and jazz. But, on the other hand, there’s no need to pigeonhole him into any genre. He can clearly do it all!””
“In the Red CD is like a soothing cup of tea that provides warmth for the soul. Antoine delivers a fresh interpretation of his inspired Jazz compositions! Absolutely beautiful!”
