Rich Perry’s previous release ‘Other Matters’ (SCCD31876) was his first album that consisted solely of his original compositions.

The master of intelligent and creative improvisation tenor saxophonist Perry does not usually see himself as a composer, but we all know the line between composing and improvising in jazz is just a blur.

On this his 26th album on SteepleChase Perry again pens all the tunes and offers the outstanding rhythm section ample space to enrich the original material. 

Tom Conrad of NYCJR remarks on ‘Nocturne’ (SCCD31776): “Probably Perry’s most passionate fans are other tenor saxophone players. Those who have spent their lives studying the instrument understand that the purity of Perry’s minimalism is a rare quality to which they themselves aspire.”

“Rich Perry has been known for his ability to play coherent and creative solos over the most complex chord changes and for his relatively mellow sound. For Other Matters, he decided to try something different. Perry wrote nine original pieces that avoid regularly recurring chord changes...Perry’s excellent departure.” - Scott Yanow, The New York City Jazz Record
