Shirley Crabbe: Home

Read "Home" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Alto Saxophonist Dave Glasser Charts on His 3rd Jazz Chart

Alto Saxophonist Dave Glasser Charts on His 3rd Jazz Chart

Glasser has been described by Nat Hentoff in this way; “Having heard Glasser primarily in the context of other bands, I was not prepared for the original quality of his composing and arranging. His writing is, first of all, like his playing in that it is utterly without pretentiousness and self-serving display of virtuosity for its ...

Dave Glasser: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

There's nothing wrong with a little old school. Saxophonist Dave Glasser keeps it simple--no flash, no gimmicks. Glasser has spent many years as a sideman, performing with artists including the Clark Terry Quintet, the Count Basie Orchestra, Illinois Jacquet and the Dizzy Gillespie All Stars. He has also recorded several CDs as a leader. A native ...

Dave Glasser: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Alto saxophonist Dave Glasser might have been born at the wrong time. While he is performing and recording some terrific music in the 21st century, his stylistic preferences lean heavily on the music of the 1940s and '50s. Glasser spent ample time over the past two-plus decades performing with Clark Terry, Illinois Jacquet, and Barry Harris, ...

Above the Clouds provides all the evidence one would need to acknowledge that an important new voice is on the scene.

Dave Glasser: Above The Clouds

Read "Above The Clouds" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Per redarre le note di copertina, si è scomodato uno dei decani (Ira Gitler) della critica jazz statunitense, che le lodi di un disco non eccelso. Un debole elemento di distinzione di Dave Glasser risiede nel non uniformarsi al timbro parkeriano, per guardare soprattutto a Benny Carter e Johnny Hodges.

Varie e prestigiose sono le ...

Dave Glasser: Above The Clouds

Read "Above The Clouds" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Nat Hentoff, in his liner notes to Above The Clouds, doth protest too much in his discussion of jazz, with its supposed death in the States and its creative future in Europe, and then tying his categoric “No!" to icons such as Clark Terry and Jimmy Heath, and youngsters such as 13-year-old Grace Kelly.

Dave Glasser: Above The Clouds

Read "Above The Clouds" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Altoist Dave Glasser continues to build his reputation with Above the Clouds, a well-realized album that's equally divided between Glasser originals and visits to the Great American Songbook. Glasser's group includes pianist Larry Ham and the veteran rhythm section of bassist Dennis Irwin and drummer Carl Allen.

I had the pleasure of hearing Glasser (along with ...
