New York tenor saxophonist and composer Michael Adkins with his quartet including Paul Motian on drums in a set of 9 original compositions.

Adkins Quartet, Michael

Adkins Quartet, Michael: Rotator (Hatology)
Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    

"When one hears Michael Adkins for the first time, there's a certain shock, not just at the presence of a new voice but that such a musician might arrive fully formed. There's something unexpected in the sheer weight of his sound and depths of meaning that impinge in his lines. It might be noted that Adkins presents himself here as a tenor saxophonist, without that usual leap to the soprano or something else, a movement almost expected of those setting out to play jazz's dominant horn. Now that suggests a player very deeply involved in the formation of his own voice, a preoccupation to which this session attests, even to a concern with an authentic sense of speech."-Stuart Broomer, from the back cover
