John Clark / Press

“John Clark, a New York free-lance musician … has just produced one of the only jazz horn recordings which no one need make any excuses for. There is little, if any, hint of the clumsiness which so often plagued the earlier jazz hornists. John is a refined and agile player with a wealth of feelings and messages to convey. The several tunes on this recording are all his original compositions and are generally quite varied with a bent toward the jazz/rock idiom. There is an abundance of multiple track over-dubbing and electronic manipulation of the horn sound, including a wah-wah pedal, phase shifter, and use of analog delay. None of this detracts but is all used to heighten the incredibly impressive improvisatory abilities of John Clark”
