Brandon Wright: Boiling Point

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by Elliott Simon


A talented young saxophonist, Brandon Wright came to NYC from Miami and honed his craft in its intimate uptown and downtown venues, while taking advantage of the Petri dish nature of its musician collegiality. And Wright obviously did more than just show up and play. He had to have listened, learned, practiced and sweated to master ...

Brandon Wright: Boiling Point

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins


It's never a bad thing when an artist emerges with a collection of more original music than remakes of standards. And when the covers are unique arrangements, or of songs not copied ad nauseam, so much the better, as is the case with saxophonist Brandon Wright's Boiling Point. Wright, originally from Woodcliff Lake, New ...

Brandon Wright: Boiling Point

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


The appeal of saxophonist, Brandon Wright comes fast, bearing a rather lyrical swagger. This young tenor player shows plenty of confidence--even cockiness--and a mature attitude on Boiling Point. Wright has a full, round tone and a forthright attack; his fingering is deft, almost like a stage magician, and it bodes with it a whispering glissando in ...

The first thing conspicuous about Brandon Wright's recording Boiling Point is his rhythm section, composed of pianist David Kikoski, bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Matt Wilson. A second curiosity is exactly who this precocious young saxophonist is to have such a rhythm section. Wright, the 2009 ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer award recipient originally from Woodcliff ...

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The word tenor, in Latin, refers to “a continuous holding to a course," and tenor saxophonist Brandon Wright does just that on Boiling Point. Whether Wright is engaging in a musical boxing match with trumpeter Alex Sipiagin or crooning over pianist David Kikoski on an established ballad, he always seems to maintain a consistent musical presence ...

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by John Barron

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
