The Brian Landrus Quartet: Traverse

Read "Traverse" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Bella band di professionisti quella che ruota intorno al sassofonista baritono Brain Landrus, allievo del noto pianista Michael Cain. Landrus colpisce subito per il suo tono colloquiale, per il fraseggio da tenorista, per la morbidezza del suono e pure, quando necessario, per la fluidità con cui padroneggia l'ingombrante strumento ("Lydian 4"). Ha poco a che fare ...

The Brian Landrus Quartet: Traverse

Read "Traverse" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

There is a gravitas in the musical intellect of baritone saxophonist/bass clarinetist Brian Landrus that can only come from a wellspring emanating from the depths of a very bluesy soul. His is a singular voice and, as he sings in sensuous, velvet tones, his long magical lines swing and swagger with rhythmic grace. Although his music ...

Boasting an extensive résumé as a sideman in addition to his 2010 debut Forward (Cadence Jazz), baritone saxophonist/bass clarinetist Brian Landrus focuses on the mainstream jazz strata on Traverse.

Landrus is best-known for being a baritone saxophonist, an instrument he mostly sticks, along with some bass clarinet, with on this, his third CD. His creative and personal ...

Brian Landrus Quartet: Traverse

Read "Traverse" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The baritone saxophone: a low-down, honking, raw and randy piece of musical metal, isn't it? What about the baritone saxophone as a romantic, seductive and rather beautifully mellow instrument? Not so likely? Well, once it's placed in the hands of Brian Landrus, the romantic side of the instrument isn't just likely, it seems to be exactly ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
