Portuguese drummer Joao Lencastre's tune Departure seemed like the right track to end a show, but perhaps I saved the best for last as well. His new recording Parallel Realities is a gem. Lencastre says he likes to hear dramatic contrasts in music, so that was his focus and the tool was using smaller groups within the quintet to play different things at the same time. Definitely worth tracking this one down. Another artist you would do well to watch/listen closely is the great young Chicago alto player Andrew Collier. There are a couple more very worth sax men to check out as well: Akihiro Yoshimoto and Jon Crompton, and I think you'll dig two very different guitarists who are debuting new releases: Dan Phillips and Tony Wilson . They're all part of a very interesting three hours of music. Enjoy!
