Justin Robinson, In THe Spur of The Moment

Justin Robinson -][- In The Spur Of The Moment – [WJ3 Records, 2012] –

Just one listen to Justin Robinson’s robust, multi-layered alto sax and its easy to tell that Charlie “Bird” Parker, the legendary bebop master, is one of his musical heroes. Yet, it is another titanic figure of jazz, John Coltrane that is reminiscent to the quiet confidence displayed in Justin Robinson’s approach. Indeed, as Coltrane is lauded as one of the most iconic characters in jazz, if not all music, it was Coltrane’s formative years with Miles Davis that not only helped to launch his solo career, but established him as the consummate picture of the sideman. For a good part of Justin Robinson’s career, he has created an impressive image of a sideman, a position he is comfortable and confident playing. -[Excerpt review by Jonathan Eaglin]-
