HighNote HCD 7106
All Too Real
It can be argued with some validity that one's overall movement through life is reflected in his or her creative endeavor, and Vincent Herring's strength and versatility on the saxophone can be viewed from this perspective. Although still young, Vincent has already covered a lot of territory, both literally and figuratively, having worked with Nat Adderley, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Jack DeJohnette, Larry Coryell, Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, The Mingus Big Band, Nancy Wilson, The Roy Hargrove Big Band, Arthur Taylor, Dr. Billy Taylor, David Murray, Carla Bley, John Hicks and The Phil Woods Sax Machine. On this, his second HighNote release as a leader, Vincent displays his phenomenal technique, his unique sense of phrasing and subtle arranging skills & emerges as one of the most exciting reedmen of his generation.
