Album Review

Altoist Dave Glasser, who perhaps is best known for his playing and recordings with Clark Terry, has an unusual tone and a searching style that one could imagine being featured on very advanced jazz. On Begin Again, Glasser mostly sticks to bebop standards with his quartet, including songs by Charlie Parker, Gigi Gryce, Lester Young, and Thelonious Monk. Glasser's tone is more advanced than his choice of notes, his rhythm section is excellent (Tardo Hammer ranges from Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk to more recent modern mainstream players) and Glasser clearly knows this music quite well. The four originals by Glasser or Hammer (whose "Conviction" is based on Monk's "Evidence") is in the bebop tradition. Once one gets used to Glasser's sound, this set can easily be enjoyed by bop fans.

Biography

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '90s, '00s

In straight-ahead jazz circles, native New Yorker Dave Glasser is perhaps best known for his extensive work as a sideman for veteran trumpeter/flügelhornist Clark Terry. The alto saxophonist (who shouldn't be confused with engineer David Glasser or classical clarinetist David Glazer) is an unapologetic bebopper; his alto playing owes a lot to the seminal Charlie "Bird" Parker and his disciples (including Sonny Stitt and Gigi Gryce), and he obviously loves the swift, exhilarating bebop chord changes...
