Review By: Dana Arentzen 

Jeff Kashiwa "Let It Ride"

Native Language Music   


Seattle native Jeff Kashiwa, has once again proved to millions, why he is labeled one of the most compelling young saxophonists in contemporary jazz.


I’m always excited to review new music, but especially when it is one of my favorite instruments, the saxophone. Artist Jeff Kashiwa, a master of this instrument, does not disappoint either. His fierce command of the sax belts out a story with each song. As I listened to the sounds on each track, I was absolutely transported into another place, where music had no bounds. Each song delivers a musical experience to those who love contemporary jazz.


There are ten tracks on this album and Kashiwa is joined by a stellar group of guest musicians, including the great pianist David Benoit, Russ Freeman, Chuck Loeb and Tom Schuman of Spyro Gyra.
