Donald Edwards Quintet - The Color Of US Suite
Cat. no: CRISS1407CD
Release Date: 20 Aug 2021
“Timing is Everything”, and as American jazz drummer Donald Edwards continues to make recordings, we are able to hear the clarity of his development as a composer and artist.
This recording ‘The Color of US Suite’ carries with it the total range in expressions of the freedom concept, the obsession with hope through the infatuation of dreams - the disappointment, anger and love for the framing of our evolving paradigm from within the prism of democracy.
Donald captures those gradations of condition in a high-minded representation of passion, delivered with high-skilled precision, and soulful highs that are as exiting to the gutbucket enthusiast as it is intriguing for the high-brow aficionado.
‘The Color Of US Suite’ signifies the idealism of being in pursuit, eye on the prize, and evince a passion for study, discipline and integrity required to handle this music’s greatest demands. Donald Edwards and fellow musicians Anthony Wonsey, Ben Wolfe, David Gilmore and Abraham Burton and are edified all the more higher for them having done so.
Donald Edwards (drums), Anthony Wonsey (piano), Ben Wolfe (bass), David Gilmore (guitar), Abraham Burton (tenor saxophone).
