Finally CD Review by Elaine K. Miller of Urban Jazz News The debut CD of Saxophonist Tony Exum Jr.

FINALLY is a disc that encompasses all elements one would expect from the sax man, combining a bit of funk with plenty of contemporary jazz. Hints of Exum’s influences (David Sanborn and the late George Howard and Grover Washington, Jr.) are heard throughout the recording. FINALLY is a compilation showcasing an urban jazz feel that is strongly influenced by R & B and hip-hop that in many ways seems reflective of Exum’s personal journey to this point and appears to come from his heart and soul. The record is thematic and consistent throughout and brings a different kind of energy from that of many c-jazz discs of today. FINALLY contains soulful sax melodies and hard drum and bass grooves that give the disc its definite and unique urban jazz feel.
