Ronnie Cuber – Boplicity (SCCD 31734)

For this latest and the fifth album on SteepleChase Ronnie Cuber brought his working band to the studio to appraise the classic BeBop repertoire, “ proving in the process the viability of material that has weathered more than 60 years and still sounds super hip and contemporary ” (Mark Gardner).

On Cuber’s previous release “RONNIE (SCCD 31680) Ken Drydon of AllAboutJazz wrote, This is his fourth CD for Steeplechase and one of his best sessions .” and London’s Sunday Express commented, “ it is the intelligence and subtlety of his playing that shines through …An astonishingly lyrical player on that most unforgiving of instruments…

“Ronnie Cuber is a baritone sax player strong enough to bring out the lyricism of the weighty instrument.” (Aaron Cohen – Downbeat)
