iTunes Editors’ Notes

Most jazz fans will have a hard time naming more than a handful of current-day jazz trombonists, but they're out there. One of the best, Michael Dease, mixes a dazzling set of chops with a crystal-clear tone that's equally impressive. Suffice to say, this Juilliard graduate has got the goods. But he needs to in order to front a hotshot band with bassist Christian McBride, pianist Renee Rosnes, alto saxophonist Steve Wilson, and rising-star drummer Ulysses Owens Jr. The quintet tears through a set that features several Dease originals (standouts include “Solid Gold” and “Good and Terrible”), as well as tunes by Rosnes and McBride. Ellington’s always-majestic “In a Sentimental Mood” gets a fresh life, as does Jule Styne’s “Just in Time.” While everybody’s playing is top-shelf throughout, Dease conducts a veritable master-class seminar for other horn players out there, trombone or otherwise, on Oscar Peterson’s “Blues Etude” and Freddie Hubbard’s “Take It to the Ozone.” Recommended.

Customer Reviews

This album could easily be titled "Summon the Heroes"

Wow, this is album is killer. Mike's come a long way as a player, producer, composer, and overall musician... "Coming Home" is a fine testament to that. This is a much different album than his earlier releases. The writing and arrangements are great. Swings hard too.

I really dig the engineering on this album. Everything's clear but in no way sterile. Awesome job!!!

Marvelous music!

There is no question that an album such as this, which brings together some of the most well respected jazz musicians in the world, and which features compositions that break new ground artistically while still being memorable and entertaining, will be an album that you will enjoy listening to over and over again! The tone he gets on the trombone and his melodic improvisations are beautiful, and he also does things on the trombone that I didn't know were possible, and I'm a trombonist!

Great Record

Mike Dease put together an all star band for this record, and they definitely do not disappoint. Christian McBride sounds amazing, playing some beautiful solos and locking in with Ulysses Owens Jr. and Renee Rosnes in the rhythm section. Steve Wilson also sounds fantastic. Mike Dease wrote some amazing music, and plays some pretty phenomenal stuff on here.
