Brent Birckhead / Press

“Best Alto Saxophonist 2011”

“Outstanding Jazz Instrumental Soloist Alto saxophone 2011”

Downbeat magazine

“Brent Birckhead has a unique sound that demands attention to detail—outwardly, his sound is broad and creamy, but upon close listen his tone betrays grit and razor-sharpness, whether in extended workout on “Blues for Red” or quick four-bar bursts as on “Fly Me to the Moon.””

“Alto saxophonist Brent Birckhead, in a class by himself, glided over the chord changes during his solos with seeming effortlessness, like an Olympic weight lifter toying with a feather. Which is not to say that Birckhead didn’t seem to be trying – only that his tone was pure as sunlight, and his free-flowing showers of notes never limited by harmonic mode. (Just don’t try to compliment the guy – he’ll call you crazy. In the face of all his skill, this Downbeat award winner’s modesty is almost criminal.)”
