Gregory Tardy – Monuments (SCCD 31725)

Saxophonist/composer Gregory Tardy’s latest album reunites him with pianist George Colligan whom Tardy has collaborated on a number of remarkable recordings. Since his return to the active performing scene a couple of years ago Gregory Tardy is today a full time member of the elite jazz circle.

He sounds as if he’s physically wresting new possibilities and beauty from an earthbound, rock-encrusted framework. …It’s moments such as these that invoke the combination of faith-infused yearning and hard-won triumph that is at the heart of the best spiritually inspired improvisational music .” (Carlo Wolff of JazzTimes on Strongest Love” SCCD 31698)
