ARC-2000 Sumi Tonooka, Erica Lindsay, Bob Braye, Rufus Reid - INITIATION

472 views 3 years ago
Initiation, the dynamic Artists Recording Collective CD by pianist Sumi Tonooka (pronounced To-NO-ka) and tenor saxophonist Erica Lindsay, showcases their shared skills as composers and bandleaders. Personnel: Erica Lindsay: tenor saxophone; Sumi Tonooka: piano; Rufus Reid: bass; Bob Braye: drums. "Initiation" is available at all of the major retailers like CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon.
"Initiation is rich with technique and soul, and brings together four musicians who work perfectly together. Tonooka's piano has enormous strength and conviction, but also a penetrating sensitivity and touch. Lindsay's saxophone is fluid, but there's sufficient chest-poking to make you feel her creative points. Reid bounces along while Braye keeps the session exciting, rarely playing the same figure for more than a few measures. He was a fascinating drummer. If you're sampling, try the ballads Somewhere Near Heaven and Mingus Mood. Or the uptempo hard bop opener Mari."
