EDITORS’ NOTES

Saxophonist Tia Fuller reveals considerable growth in the six years since the release of Angelic Warrior. On her fifth album, Diamond Cut, the former Beyoncé sidewoman enlists producer Terri Lyne Carrington—drummer extraordinaire, advocate, and role model for powerful women in jazz—and a skilled circle of musicians. Guitarist Adam Rogers and organist Sam Yahel electrify with tonal and harmonic wizardry, while two top-tier rhythm sections (Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette, James Genus and Bill Stewart) illuminate every nook of Fuller’s lyrical alto and soprano playing. The covers (including Cole Porter’s “I Love You” and Mal Waldron’s “Soul Eyes”) have an alert and creative bounce; the originals are full of uncommon color and expression.
