About the Album

Following up on 2007's critically acclaimed Shade, Seattle-based saxophonist Richard Cole's Inner Mission further solidifies his position among the important voices on the tenor saxophone. Once again utilizing the talents of long time-friend and trumpet giant, Randy Brecker, Cole leads the group through a maze of deconstructed jazz and pop standards, as well as several thought-provoking originals. "Come Together" gets a dark and smokey treatment, while Cole and pianist Bill Anschell's co-written "Blame It On My Reed" sets the band into a burning spiral of rhythm changes. With a sideman cast that reads like a "who's who" of Pacific Northwest jazz, Inner Mission documents another landmark in the seasoned career of this "brilliant, fertile" player (Earshot Jazz).
