"On the follow-up to his debut Secret Handshake (a far-ranging and well received quartet recording), saxophonist Brian Settles delves into the tenor trio format on his second Engine Studios release, Folk. Accompanied by longtime collaborators Jeremy Carlstedt (drums) and Corcoran Holt (bass), Settles leads the trio through a program of original compositions inspired by family, friendship, tradition, and art. The trios versatility and expressiveness are on display, exploring the depths of each piece with care and imagination. Holts warm sound and deliberate pulse combines with Carlstedts meticulously loose drumming and attention to detail to accentuate Settles beautiful tone, offering an inspired performance by a saxophonist deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, with his own sound and unique approach to the music."-Engine

"It is not too much to say that the jazz world finally has a modern-day Archie Shepp, one who is intensely steeped in the jazz tradition and is moving the music forward."-Capital Bop
