Review of "Her Eyes" cd:

Jim Odgren, alto saxophonist extraordinaire, has put together an album filled with playing of extraordinary intricacy. Yet it's executed with such style and ease, it's accessible to the common listener. Its smooth melodicism, mixed with intricate lines and exiting harmonies makes this album a must to listen to.
This is musicianship at the highest level and it deserves a place in everyones CD collection

Good Morning Gloucester

On Thursday Oct. 25, The Jim Odgren Quintet energized the Gloucester House with two fabulous jazz sets.  On smoking alto sax, Odgren led the band through a tasty array of be-bop, ballads and straight-aheads from Evans to Coltrane.  Young guitarist Lucian Gray defied finger speed records as he sailed over the fret-board  relaxed, cross-legged, confident, superb.  On keys, Davis Whitfields’ understated, elegant renderings and his composed countenance belied his young age.  And rhythm section, student Roberto Giaquinto on drums and Berklee professor and bassist Dave Santoro were unflappable and inspired.
