    ProducerCecil Brooks III

    Personnel: Don Braden (alto flute, tenor saxophone); George Colligan (piano); Joris Teepe (bass instrument); Cecil Brooks III (drums).
    Tenor saxophonist Don Braden has impeccable credentials, having replaced Branford Marsalis in brother Wynton's band. Braden continues the neo-trad path of his former employer with GENTLE STORM, a quartet session featuring the fine simpatico pianist George Colligan. No surprises here, except perhaps Braden's romantic flute on "My Foolish Heart"--just solidly swinging, earnest hard bop, played with dynamism and conviction.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Essential to his appeal on GENTLE STORM is a knack for retooling familiar tunes in unexpected ways, as he does with a bracing version of Leon Russell's 'This Masquerade'..."
    JazzTimes (p.60) - "This is an album on which Braden makes the neo-traditionalist case that the music he has studied and loved remains viable, and that a younger musician can still find new things to say with it."
