Othello - JD Allen Trio - I Am I Am (CD)

J.D. Allen, Jd Allen Trio, J.D. Allen, Gerald Cleaver form and chord structure still exist. The challenge is to play honest and to really say who I AM. It is evident on this CD that Allen has met and exceeded that challenge. The aural evidence of his gifts are crystal clear: A huge, broad tone, expressed in an uncommon lyrical logic, with 5/5(3).

I Am I Am by J.D. Allen Trio - CD () for $ from Jazz JazzTimes: 'A spiritual current that often evokes Coltrane runs throughout I AM I AM the arrangements are focused, the melodies appealing.' - Order by Phone Brand: Sunnyside.

 · Up until two weeks ago, I had never heard of JD Allen. Several jazz critics put this CD on their top ten lists, so I decided to download it. This is as imaginative and inspired as any release of the past decade. James Carter, Joe Lovano, and Joshua Redman are three of my favorite tenor players. JD Allen can stand toe to toe with any of them.5/5(3).

 · J.D. Allen is a tenor saxophonist who clearly wears his influences on his sleeve, and is devoted to the sound that made Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane icons in modern jazz. While still developing his own voice on the instrument, Allen exudes a quiet confidence, stream of consciousness ideas, and solid sense of purpose for this recording in a sax-bass-drums trio setting, much like Rollins .

 · JD Allen Trio: I AM I AM. Playing from the heart, creating and improvising from within, jazz music's mantra continues to espouse that "honesty is the best policy." This is heard and felt when listening to saxophonist J.D. Allen's I Am I Am. In an insightful and inspirational interview, the artist gives light to what makes his music forthcoming.
