Product Description

Product Description

'Pushing the World Away', Kenny Garrett's seventeenth album as a leader, captures him at the peak of his creative abilities, both as a saxophonist and as a composer.

Garrett pays tribute to a number of his influences - friends and heroes that include Chick Corea ("Hey, Chick"), Chucho Valdés ("Chucho's Mambo"), Sonny Rollins ("J'Ouvert") and Garrett's musical confidant and album co-producer, Donald Brown ("Brother Brown").

Mentored himself by Art Blakey and Miles Davis Garrett feels it his duty to carry on that tradition by encouraging young talent. So he drew on a wide pool of musicians on this session, newcomers as well as older hands. In addition to regular quintet member Donald Brown the other two pianists he used, Vernell Brown and Benito Gonzalez, are both graduates of the informal Kenny Garrett School of Music. The drummers include McClenty Hunter, Marcus Baylor and Mark Whitfield Jr. and the featured percussionist Rudy Bird has now been added to Garrett's working group.

In all, 'Pushing the World Away' features twelve tunes, all of which were composed by Garrett except for one cover, a superb, lyrical, odd-metered take on the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "I Say a Little Prayer".

Personnel: Kenny Garrett (alto saxophone and soprano saxophone, chant, piano), Benito Gonzalez (piano), Corcoran Holt (bass), Marcus Baylor, Mark Whitfield, Jr. (drums), McClenty Hunter (drums, vocals), Rudy Bird (percussion, cymbals, gong), Ravi Best (trumpet), Vernell Brown (piano, chant), Jean Baylor (vocals), Track 10: Carolin Pook (violin) Brian Sanders (cello), Jen Herman (viola)

Review

'Exhilarating new recording...Garrett has hit another high in his recording career.' -- Jazzwise, (Selwyn Harris), October 2013 * * * *


'Kenny Garrett performs at such consistently high levels that his hip melodies, intense expressionism and rhythmic discipline can easily be taken for granted. Yet he remains jazz's lead saxophonist, and, as his latest CD shows, is a canny composer of built-for-purpose themes.' -- Financial Times, (Mike Hobart), September 14, 2013 * * * *


' Promiscuously mixes Latin rhythms with whip-smart post-bop...a typical Garrett production: irresistibly peppy and exuberant, yet graceful, even elegant in its assured adherence to the core jazz values of swing and improvisatory imagination.' -- LondonJazzNews, (Chris Parker), September 27, 2013


'There are great moments of spontaneity, as when the band comes in again joyfully after a false ending on 'That's It'. Garrett's lyrical side shows through too, especially when he puts down his alto sax to play piano on 'Brother Brown'.'

--Hi Fi News, (Steve Harris), December 2013

It's good and worth it but I wouldn't say mind blowing. Saxophonist with a lot of edge and intensity.

This is a fantastic album which catches Kenny Garett at the peak of his admirable music carrer. This modern masterpiece is the result of an exciting journey through the history of jazz. Last year Kenny and his group swept us away in an amazing 3 1/2 hours concert in the Athens club "Gazarte". Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I was delighted and rewarded greatly by their flat out hard playing ... 31 May 2015
By Lynwood - Published on Amazon.com

This collection opens up burning and kept me listening, transported to the creation Kenny Garrett worked and willed into being. I saw the Garrett quintet in concert April 2015 .They performed the compositions on this cd. I was delighted and rewarded greatly by their flat out hard playing and no nonsense musical delivery.I often loop the cd and get to my work- driven.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like a cross between "Songbook" and "Seeds from the Underground" 14 Nov. 2014
By Susan W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's like a cross between "Songbook" and "Seeds from the Underground". The only major difference here is that we miss Kenny's presence. Vernell Brown and Benito Gonzalez are excellent on here. Grammy nominated for best jazz instrumental. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A STEP FORWARD IN THE SAME DIRECTION 4 Oct. 2013
By Manuel Grosso Galvan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This new effort is in the same direction of "Seeds from the Underground". Probably is more essential in same way. Like always he play the alto saxophone incredible good. For me the problem is that is no so compact than the other one. Anyway is a brilliant album with incredible moments. Probably the best song may be "Pushing the world Away", is where you can find the deepest Garret. The group is excellent. Benito Gonzalez on piano, Corcoran Hat on bass, Marcus Baylor on drums, with same changes in several tunes. You can find from deep jazz, salsa, calypso ... to Burt Bacharach song. Is better than what you can think in the first audition. Good music, no difficult to listen but full of technics and flavor.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... pushing his horn with purpose 23 Sept. 2013
By nouveaujaz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The quintessential Kenny Garrett returns with another monster album "Pushing Away the World." What I love most about Garrett, he always approaches each note with the cold steel in hand and his lips placed perfectly on the mouthpiece as if he's a gladiator in the Roman Empire. There are lots of very, very good saxophonist recording and performing at the finest venues these days but Kenny Garrett stands tall among them with the swagger and aptitude of John Coltrane. My o'my, I'll still savoring Kenny's unparalleled tone, uncharted melodies and vivid symmetry his bandmates brilliantly displays with unyielding purpose on this outstanding recording.
