A trio of saxophonists...

Wunderkind pianist, 29 year-old Jesse Green enlists the services of three saxophone heavyweights for his new recording, Sylvan Treasure. David Liebman, Chris Potter, and Phil Woods join brassman Patrick Dorian and the Jesse Green trio for a rollicking roll through Be Bop ("Extreme Sporting"), Post-Coltrane free bop ("Hesplopia"), and probing post bop ("Sylvan Treasure"). Green’s trio is crisp and polite and fancies order execution over the "Let Freedom Ring" principle. Green uses his sidemen in a variety of combinations, with all four of them trading licks on the disc closer "Porpdog". For all of the intelligence of David Liebman and studiousness of Chris Potter, it remains the irrepressible Phil Woods that gives the best performances on the recording. Sylvan Treasure is a worthy follow-up to Green’s other Chiaroscuro releases, Lift Off (CR(D) 319, 1992) and Sea Journey (CR(D) 328, 1993).
