Young Bandleader Plays, and Listens
Preminger's Debut CD, Dry Bridge Road:
"More than just a promising starting point, this is a display of integrity; here’s a musician you feel you
can trust... Preminger’s album “Dry Bridge Road” is unusually graceful... [he] plays with care and dry
precision, dividing his time among all registers, with even tone and projection in each." - Ben Ratliff,
New York Times
"Noah Preminger's impressive premiere, Dry Bridge Road, offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future of
an up-and-coming artist." - Troy Collins, All About Jazz
"Preminger is a more than promising young tenor saxophonist whose cohorts on this recording debut
reflect the esteem in which he is held... the unison line of Sax of a Kind with Ben Monder is
immaculately played, while Preminger's solos, particularly on Where Seagulls Fly and Blues for Steve
Lacey, are assured and well conceived. Tellingly, in the group improvisations that develop, Preminger
sounds thoroughly at home." - Ray Comiskey, Irish Times (Dublin)
