“With all the freshness, cool, and originality that has come to draw me to “new” and exciting artists like Cannata time and time again, this self-titled debut by the saxman speaks loud, clear, and with depth. His tenor sax has attitude and a story to tell, and does it ever tell it. ”
"This whole CD is incredible..it sounds like what contemporary sax players did before BA put the chains on..I reviewed it several months ago but for some reason the link is broken to that review. Lots of goodies here" To Quote Steve Oliver "just stop, look, and listen to see what we're missing. A richness of open doors"
