Village Voice’s Jazz Consumer Guide by Tom Hull

Ben Goldberg’s clarinet takes flight immediately, with Sheldon Brown adding extra oomph on tenor sax and bass clarinet while the leader pokes in bits of trumpet and lays in wait for his breaks.

These days, virtually all jazz musicians claim that title, but few convince you it matters.
