Another write-up for Peter Brendler “Outside the Line”…

leave a comment


Peter Brendler, Outside the Line: Nice modern set from bassist Brendler, who brings a strong quartet to the table with drummer Vinnie Sperrazza, trumpeter Peter Evans, and saxophonist Rich Perry. A post-bop album that allows its seams to become frayed and its joints loosened, creating shifts in sound to something freer and untamed… makes for some nice marks of contrast without having to strain album cohesion. Also, a supremely enjoyable rendition of Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side.” Always nice to see Peter Evans sitting in on an album… one of those names that pretty much guarantees that a recording is going to sound at least a little bit different than others situated in similar territory.
