Saxophonist Wayne Escoffery leads a very special quartet featuring pianist George Cables, bassist Richie Goods, and drummer Mike Clark. A protege of the late great Jackie McLean, Escoffery has worked notably with Eric Reed, Lonnie Plaxico, Abdullah Ibrahim, the Mingus Big Band/Orchestra/Dynasty, Ben Rileys Monk Legacy Septet, and Tom Harrell. All About Jazz says, Not since the works of bassist Charles Mingus and saxophonist John Coltrane has there been music so charged with emotion and so engulfed in spirituality.
"Every time he plays, saxophonist Wayne Escoffery brings a sense memory that includes early days in the church choir in New Haven, Connecticut; the wisdom and watchful eye of the legendary Jackie McLean; time spent with The Mingus Big Band, Ron Carter and Tom Harrell."...
