I love JD Allen’s trio. Unlike most tenor players, and saxophone players in general, JD Allen’s solos and compositions get right to the point; they are concise, brief, and full of ideas. I saw that his third album for Sunnyside Records, Victory!
, is going to drop on Tuesday. And that’s why I’m happy that NPR decided to allow folks to check out the album on its website (go here) for free until Tuesday. I am listening to it right now, and so now this means not only am I going to have to get it, but I’ll probably end up ponying up some extra cash to buy the LP version of it from Sunnyside’s website. So do yourselves a favor folks – check out Allen’s new record.
