SCCD 31816 Ari Ambrose “Retrospect”
Tenor saxophonist, composer and now attorney at law (immigration specialist) as well Ari Ambrose has successfully gained the recognition from the critics and the public as one of the most innovative improvisers with his own voice.
On this his 14th album Ambrose looks back into the music that inspired him originally as teenager to find something new from it.
“Since his recording debut as leader on SteepleChase ‘Introducing Ari Ambrose’ some 15 years ago, saxophonist Ari Ambrose has maintained his impressive output and sound – a modern take on classic jazz forms, which he has polished to perfection on this album.” (Propermusic, UK on “settling In” SCCD 31770)
