    Recording information: M&I Recording Studios, New York, NY (08/17/2005).
    David "Fathead" Newman has always straddled the line between jazz and R&B, and this fine, easy-going release from 2006 is a case in point. There are chops and grooves galore on this set, both from the leader and from his excellent band (a septet that boasts a mighty horn section).
    Whether on opener "Goldfinger" (the classic James Bond theme), the gospel-touched "Here Comes Sonny Man," or the tightly funky "Suki Duki," Newman delivers with the same sort of rhythmic ease and melodic grace he's been known for since the 1950s. CITYSCAPE is full of vigorous but highly accessible groove-oriented jazz.

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.123) - "CITYSCAPE proves that Newman hasn't lost much of his fastball. He's still a solid, straight-forward improviser, heavy on blues feeling and refreshingly light on thrills."
