Jazz Journal – CD East of the Sun- Hagen – Halperin – Andersen

No Comments

“While the music has a cerebral element it is strong rhythmically and its complexity is no barrier to enjoyment. There is some beautiful collaborative counterpoint between guitar and saxophone, and bassist Andersen keeps the pulse pumping evenly.
Like all Blue Jack releases this CD is attractively packaged and presented with informative booklet notes. Really, you could not expect or ask for more. Aside from any other considerations, the music reveals that Lennie Tristano’s approach to playing still has its followers, and thank goodness for that”.
