Saltman Knowles -|- Yesterday’s Man – [Pacific Coast Jazz, 2010]Saltman Knowles, called “a fine example of all that is good in contemporary jazz,” once again stays true to melody and original composition in their latest release on the Pacific Coast Jazz label, Yesterday’s Man. On the heels of their critically acclaimed fifth CD, Return of the Composer, bassist Mark Saltman and pianist William Knowles have produced a sophisticated yet rhythmically driven statement with a fresh point of view that illustrates the importance of combining intricate song craft with introspective emotion.

Great stuff coming out, especially Michael Janisch’s purpose built!! with an all star cast (SERIOUSLY check out Walter Smith III go to town on track 4) this debut by Janisch is a serious statement.. I never heard of this guy and was tipped by a friend in NYC… heavy stuff, and Killing bass playing!
Hi thanks for the feedback Bill Bass! Man, I appreciate the suggestion about saxophonist Walter Smith III. He’s a bad dude on the horn. I’m seriously thinking getting the
Michael Janisch disc, I really dig the upright bass sound blended with modern jazz textures.
