The Jazz Word on Jacam Manricks “Cloud Nine”…

leave a comment


Jacám Manricks is a saxophonist of incomparable technical skill with an engaging alto tone. His original compositions are challenging, yet maintain engaging and accessible qualities. His latest for Posi-Tone Records is Cloud Nine, featuring organist Sam Yahel, guitarist Adam Rogers and drummer Matt Wilson.
Despite this first-rate cast, a disc highlight is “Serene Pilgrimage”, a solo saxophone improv inspired by a visit Manricks made to the gravesite of Eric Dolphy. Other tracks of note include a 5/4 interpretation of John Coltrane’s “Countdown” called “Take the Five Train” with blistering saxophone work, and the ballad “Alibis and Lullabies” featuring guest trumpeter David Weiss.
