    Drummer Eric McPherson paid his dues performing with Blue Note jazz legends Jackie McLean and Andrew Hill, and he makes his debut as leader with CONTINUUM. Taking cues from classic modal sounds (such as John Coltrane's A LOVE SUPREME), early fusion (circa 1969-70), and a smattering of world music, CONTINUUM is a seething batch of dark, deep grooves and sizzling solos. McPherson has a rare gift insofar as his drumming is full and busy (playing polyrhythms) without ever sounding cluttered or hammy. Saxophonist Abraham Burton's surging sound sometimes recalls Wayne Shorter during his 1960s peak. All in all, a most worthy debut for a promising bandleader.
